Canyon Lake man charged with assault of 11-year-old girl

by Kevin Force, Editor

A Canyon Lake man was arrested by the Comal County Sheriff's Department last week on criminal charges of assault by contact of an 11-year-old girl.

Lloyd Deauquier III was booked for the Class C misdemeanor and was released from the Comal County Jail on Thursday after posting a $2,500 bond.

Comal County Sheriff's Detective Wayne Lehman said that an investigation of the allegations made against Deauquier were credible enough to issue a warrant for the misdemeanor, but did not warrant a felony charge of an indecency with a child under Texas Penal Code.

As a misdemeanor, the case will go before the Justice of the Peace in Precinct 4. Class C misdemeanors are punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.
