KILGORE — A man has been arrested after authorities say he had sexual relations with a minor who was high on methamphetamine. KETK reports Christopher Dale Temple, 33, of Kilgore, was arrested for the sexual assault of a 13-year-old that reportedly happened in May. Temple has a lengthy rap sheet in the Gregg County Judicial system, including burglary, assault, possession of marijuana, and criminal mischief.
According to officials, Temple and three others, including the 13-year-old, were all smoking a meth pipe in Temple’s home prior to the assault. An anonymous tip claimed Temple said he had sex with the teenager but thought she was 18 until after the relations happened. Temple was taken into custody around 5:00 p.m. on Thursday in Rusk County and taken to the Gregg County Jail. Bond has been set at $100,000.
