A Wichita Falls bail bondsman is back behind bars just over a year after his first arrest.

Maxie "Maxx" Green was arrested Thursday morning, charged with tampering with a witness in his case.

The pending case began more than a year ago, when Green was charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child on August 16, 2011. He posted $500,000 bond on October 19 and has been awaiting trial in Archer County ever since.

DPS Troopers arrested Green on behalf of the Texas Rangers. He is currently being held on $250,000 bond in Wichita County Jail.

The original affidavit from Archer County claims Green sexually assaulted a 7 year old. The child was interviewed at Patsy's House on August 12, 2011.

The new affidavit from Wichita County alleges Maxie Green met with Brenda Green last Thursday, and coached her on what to say if she was interviewed by the District Attorney's office.

One section of the affidavit reads, "Maxie Green told Brenda Green if he loses the case she will not have anything because nobody can take care of her or their business." It later states "[Maxie] told her he was going to take care of her financial needs as long as she cooperated with him and did nothing stupid."

Brenda Green was interviewed by an investigator with the 97th District Attorney's Office on Monday. That same day the investigator contacted the Texas Rangers. The investigator and a Ranger interviewed a third person who was in the room on Wednesday. The third party said he overheard parts of their conversation, including Maxie telling Brenda to go home and practice her answers in the mirror.

The original Aggravated Sexual Assault case is still pending in an Archer County court, while the new Witness Tampering charge will be tried in Wichita County. Witness Tampering is a First Degree Felony. Archer County Distinct Attorney Jack McGaughey and he said both charges are considered separate matters. He was not sure if the new charges would interfere with the start of Green's original case.
