Logan Wesley III is accused of sexually abusing a young girl for years and police said that more victims are ready to come forward.

The original investigation found that Wesley allegedly started molesting a girl when she was just 12-years-old and it continued for several years. According to Texarkana PD, Jones turned himself in to authorities Tuesday evening.

A search of Texas state records reveals that Wesley pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in 1990 and a DWI in 1991. Both occurred in Lamar County.

Anyone that has been victimized by Wesley, or knows someone who may have been victimized by him is urged to contact Detective Smith at 903-798-3116.
