Texas man arrested on additional sex charges

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

Lake Charles – The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has re-arrested Michael S. Crumpler, 35, of Orange, Texas, and charged him with an additional 13 counts of sexual battery; 13 counts of aggravated rape; and 2 counts of molestation of a juvenile. 

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.

After his arrest, the investigation continued and new evidence led to Crumpler being indicted on additional counts involving the same victims by a Calcasieu Parish Grand Jury on March 9.  A warrant was issued for his arrest and his information was entered into the NCIC database.

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.
