A Mocksville man is accused of sex offenses against a 7-year-old girl and is scheduled to appear in a Davie courtroom on the felony charges today.
Terry Randall Laxton Sr., 60, of US 158, was arrested Oct. 21 for two counts of first degree sex offense against a child, two counts indecent liberties with a child, felony disseminate obscenity and first degree rape.
According to Davie County Sheriff's Chief J.D. Hartman, on Oct. 14 the department was contacted by a school guidance counselor who said she was contacted by a parent who said another student had told her child there had been sexual contact with an older person.
Detectives began investigating the allegations.
“The victim was taken to The Dragonfly House and was examined,” Hartman said. “There was enough evidence found to be able to charge Mr. Laxton with these crimes.”
Hartman said the incidents Laxton is accused of took place within the past six months.
Hartman did not give details or locations of the alleged crimes, but did say, “Search warrants have been served for videos and a computer as we continue this investigation.”
Laxton was placed in Davie County Detention Center in lieu of a $15,000 secured bond.
