CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - A Vinton man, accused of sex crimes, was arrested in Texas this week after months on the run, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

David Lee Massey, 33, is accused of taking nude photographs and having inappropriate sexual contact with three juveniles, ages 11, 13, and 14. He is also accused of physically abusing two of the alleged victims.

Massey waived extradition and on Thursday, he was brought to the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with aggravated sexual battery, pornography involving juveniles and cruelty to a juvenile.

Bond is set at $125,000.
