Crumpler was previously arrested in April 2010 after an investigation revealed between February 2004 and September 2008, he inappropriately touched and performed sexual acts on two girls who were 5 and 6 years old at the time the incidents began.  He was booked into CCC and charged with 2 counts of aggravated rape and 4 counts of sexual battery and released on a $200,000 bond set by Judge Robert Wyatt.

On March 10, Orange County Sheriff's Office, with information provided to them by CPSO detectives, arrested Crumpler at his home in Orange, Texas.  He was transported and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center on March 22.

Crumpler's trial date is set for January 23, 2013.

Judge Wilford Carter set Crumpler's bond at $1,070,000.

CPSO Detective Michael Primeaux is the lead investigator on this case.
