Livingston Man Cofesses to 3 Counts of Child Sex Crimes, LIVINGSTON, September 13, 2018 - On September 10, 2018, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division received information from the mother of a 12 year old female child that she walked into her daughter’s bedroom finding a man attempting to sexually assault her daughter. The child victim was taken to Polk County’s Child Advocacy Center, Childrenz Haven, where a forensic interview was conducted with the child who made an outcry of being sexually molested by the man on three different occasions in less than a month. The actor was identified as Rickey B. Alexander age 31 of Livingston. After the interview the child was transferred to Chi St. Lukes Hospital were a sexual assault exam was conducted on the child for the purpose of evidence collection and medical attention for the victim. While the child was being interviewed Rickey Alexander voluntarily turned himself in to the Sheriff’s Office after learning that the matter had been reported where upon his interview with detectives he admitted to conducting sexual acts with the child three different times. After all evidence was collected and completed later that day Rickey Alexander was booked into the Polk County Jail on three counts of Indecency with a Child by Sexual Contact. His bond was later set at $50,000 for each count by JP 4 Jamie Jones along with an Emergency Protective Order and certain bond conditions he must follow upon his release. Sheriff Kenneth Hammack ask that if you know or suspect of a child being physically and or sexually abused to contact Lt. Craig Finegan or Detective Christi Allen with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office at 936-327-6810, or you may report the matter to your local Texas Abuse Hotline at 800-252-5400. Sheriff Hammack would like to thank the Polk County District Attorney’s Office, Chi St. Lukes SANE Nurses, Child Protective Services and Childrenz Haven staff who all come together each time a child in Polk County is physically or sexually abused to assist in the investigation and provide medical treatment and counseling to not only the child victim but to non-offending family members of the child. Without this team of agencies working together we would not be able to provide comfort to these families and prosecute those offenders.
