HARRIS AND FORT BEND COUNTIES (Covering Katy) – A 50-year-old man currently incarcerated in the Fort Bend County jail on an unrelated sexual assault of a child charge has been charged with two counts of continuous sexual assault of a child and one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child in Harris County.

Investigators say that Dwayne Bernard Howard was at the center of a child sexual assault case in October of 2010, when he fled to Europe in order to avoid Harris County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse investigators.

The initial investigation revealed that two female victims, ages 11 and 16, disclosed sexual abuse by Howard. He forced one victim to pose wearing provocative clothing while he photographed her. The victims told examiners Howard would use a live web camera and film them without clothing.

In February of 2016 Howard was arrested in Fort Bend County.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office case was reopened, and a third victim came forward, a male who also was abused by Howard. That victim told investigators that Howard abused him sexually from the age of 12 until he was 15 years old.

The victim gave a detailed description of Howard’s laptop computer, which is now in the custody of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. He was suspected of file-sharing child pornography while in Europe.

Howard was previously convicted in 1998 for an indecency with a child charge and was sentenced to six years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
