Lubbock Man Accused of Having Sex With Underage Runaway Girl
A Lubbock man was indicted earlier this week for having a sexual relationship with an underage girl. Police say the girl is younger than 14 and had run away from home.
On February 11th, the Lubbock Police Department received a tip that the girl was staying at the home of 23-year-old David Bobby Lawrence (pictured above) in the 2300 block of 53rd Street.
When police located the girl, KAMC News reports she told them she was staying with Lawrence because they were dating. She also admitted to having consensual sex with him multiple times even though he knew how old she was. Lawrence was arrested days later on February 14th.
Lawrence was charged Tuesday, February 25th for aggravated sexual assault of a child. He remains in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $150,000 bond.
