Longview, TX — A former sheriff’s deputy, who was arrested in September for two counts of sexual indecency with a child by contact, has been arrested on a sex charge that involves another alleged victim.

Nichols, 49, was arrested Friday by Texas Ranger Jason Dudley, who obtained a warrant while working in conjunction with the Harrison County District Attorney’s Office.
