TEXAS MAN JAILED FOR SEX OFFENSES IN WASHINGTON PARISH

Gary Wayne Mayfield, 63, a resident of Rusk, Texas, is in the Washington Parish Jail charged with two counts of aggravated rape and one count of indecent behavior with juveniles.  The crimes were committed several years ago against two juveniles in Washington Parish and were only revealed recently.  Mayfield’s bond has been set at $530,000. 

During the investigation, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives determined that Mayfield, a former resident of Washington Parish, had relocated to Rusk, Texas.  In early February, 2017, detectives obtained a warrant for Mayfield’s arrest and sent a copy of the warrant to detectives with the Cherokee County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office.  Texas detectives were able to locate and arrest Mayfield and place him in the Cherokee County Jail awaiting extradition to Washington Parish. 

Mayfield unsuccessfully fought the extradition process, but ultimately lost the fight.  A Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office transport officer traveled to Texas and brought him to the Washington Parish Jail on  June 11.

 Additional information will not be released in order  to protect the identity of Mayfield’s victims. 

Sheriff Randy Seal complimented Washington Parish detectives on bringing the case to conclusion and working with Texas law enforcement officials to have Mayfield arrested and brought back to Washington Parish to stand trial.  “As always, our detectives devoted necessary resources to make an arrest.  Cases like this are always complicated and sensitive.  I appreciate the hard work of our detective division.”
