New information is surfacing in the case of a a former deputy constable accused of inappropriately touching a woman during an arrest. According to reports, the former deputy was indicted on a charge of having sexual contact with a person in custody. The new allegation involves an additional woman reporting a similar incident of inappropriate touching by the former deputy. The latest indictment was delivered Monday by a Harris County grand jury with the deputy facing a charge of improper sexual contact with a person in custody.
Reports indicate that Christopher Kerr was a Precinct 3 deputy constable who resigned last September after being accused in August by a woman he had pulled over on a traffic stop on the beltway. The woman accused Kerr of fondling her in the back of his patrol car. An investigation is ongoing in the case.
Kerr now faces similar allegations, but a different complainant. According to reports of the latest case, a similar incident happened in July of last year, a month before the earlier allegation. Another woman made claims that Kerr took her into custody and fondled her. Precinct 3 turned over the results of its investigation to the DA’s police integrity review unit. That unit in turn gave the case to the grand jury. Kerr’s bond has been set at $2,000.
