Lufkin, Tx (KETK) — An East Texas man and former Louisianan was arrested recently for having incestual relations with a 7-year-old boy, according to the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Sanderson, 74, of Lufkin, formerly of Starks, was having inappropriate sexual contact with a child. Officials believe the the boy was molested several times in 2012 while Sanderson was still in Starks.
Detectives issued an arrest warrant for Sanderson on January 30, and on February 16, he was taken into custody and booked into the Lufkin City Jail.
Sanderson is currently awaiting extradition to Calcasieu Parish where he will be booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with five counts of aggravated incest. His bond is set at $1,500,000.
