Texoma Man to Stand Trial on Two Sexual Assault Charges

A Texoma man has been indicted on two counts of aggravated sexual assault charges.

Wichita Falls police conducted an investigation jointly with child protective services on the allegations of possible sexual abuse of a 13 year old female. The victim was interviewed on November 4, 2010.

The victim said that in early June 2009, the suspect, Ezekiel Gabriel Wiggins, was released from prison and he and the victim's mother were in a relationship. The child indicated that the suspect engaged her sexually twice over the span of 24 hours. The child provided information that "Zeke" forced himself on her and that she attempted to fight him off but he continued to assault him sexually. Wiggins was found to be a sex offender of a child at the time of the offense.

Another victim told police she was sexually assaulted by Wiggins in November 2005. She was interviewed by police and CPS in January 2001. Officials said this assault happened two days prior to Wiggins being arrested for assaulting her mother and gave further details of the assault which previously led to his arrest on 11/25/2005. The child indicated that she had been afraid to tell CPS and police due to being threatened by Wiggins that she would never see her mother again if she told anyone. At the time of the offense Wiggins was and still is a registered sex offender, whose victim was a child under the age of 14.

A Wichita County grand jury handed down the indictment April 21, 2011.
