The Sheriff's Office conducted a search warrant on Lejeune's residence back on December 5 where investigators found child pornography and improper visual recordings made at his residence. Lejeune was not home during the execution of the search warrant, but was later found at work. Investigators with the Sheriff Office and Texas Ranger Travis Brazil conducted an interview with Lejeune who allegedly gave a confession to what evidence had been found at his residence.

Sheriff Bridges stated that during this time, investigators have been busy reviewing evidence found at the scene. Investigators have uncovered numerous DVD's that were found in Lejeune's bedroom. Sheriff Bridges said that there are over 150 videos of improper visual recordings and over 30 videos of child pornography that were reportedly downloaded by Lejeune.

During the investigation, the sheriff office uncovered an alleged sexual assault that occurred at Lejeune's residence to a child in 1999. Lejeune was interviewed about the sexual assault of a child and allegedly gave a confession to the crime.

The Nacogdoches County Sheriff Office obtained two more warrants for Lejeune on December 17, 2013. Lejeune was charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child a first felony and Possession of Child Pornography a 2nd felony.

Sheriff Bridges said that the computers taken from Lejeune's residence are still being processed by the Lufkin Police Department Computer Forensics Department. Police say that more charges may still be filed at the conclusion of this case.

Justin Lejeune is awaiting arraignment on the two felony charges filed Tuesday against him. He remains in the Nacogdoches County Jail.

The Texas Rangers, FBI and Lufkin Police Department are assisting in the investigation.
