TEXARKANA, Texas -- An indictment filed in Texarkana federal court this week alleges abusive sexual contact without permission on Red River Army Depot property in June 2020.
Andrew Hernandez, age unknown, is the only defendant named in the case. The indictment accuses Hernandez of engaging in sexual contact with another person "without that person's permission" at RRAD on June 12, 2020.
The indictment is scant on details though a notice of punishment in the case indicates Hernandez could receive up to two years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
A special assessment of $5,000 authorized by the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015 is possible as well, according to the notice of punishment. The law empowers federal district courts to impose the assessments in cases involving sexual abuse.
Court records indicate that Hernandez has not yet made an initial court appearance on the charge and no attorney of record is listed for him. The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Robert Schroeder III.
