Five East Texans have been arrested in the past 10 days and charged with some variety of sexual abuse of a child.
Guillermo Morales, 17, of White Oak; Christopher Townsend, 34, of Longview; Ronald Dison, 51, of Gladewater; Peggy Weinberg, 26; and Cassandra Stone, 32, of Kilgore have been arrested since Nov. 19 and are currently held in the Gregg County Jail.
Weinberg and Stone, along with Jesse Smith, who was previously arrested and had charges increased, were arrested in connection with the molestation of a 2-year-old boy.
Weinberg was with her boyfriend, Smith, and her friend Stone were at a residence when “Peggy, Jesse and Cassie were all doing drugs and decided to have sex with each other,” according to the criminal complaint for Weinberg’s arrest.
Weinberg told a Gregg County sheriff’s investigator she fell asleep and when she woke up, she saw Smith and Stone touching the child. However, Stone told investigators Weinberg said, “let’s play around,” and encouraged Smith and Stone to molest the child, according to the criminal complaints.
