A Lindale man was arrested for a sexual assault of a child.
Mark James Nunley, 31, of Lindale, was arrested on December 22, 2016 after surrendering to Smith County authorities.
On December 16, Smith County Deputies received a report of a sexual assault of a child. After identifying Nunley as the man responsible, the child was forensically interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Tyler.
During that interview, the child said they were sexually abused by Nunley repeatedly for an extended amount of time. An adult witness corroborated that story.
Nunley’s bond was set at $350,000. He has posted bond and been released from the Smith County Jail.
