JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A judge found probable cause Wednesday to charge James Lee Haggenmacher, 42, of Jonesboro with second degree sexual assault Wednesday.

According to court documents, a 12-year-old girl told an Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children investigator that Haggenmacher had slept with her in the bottom bunk of a bunk bed on a few separate occasions.

“While they lay in the bed together, the suspect put his hand inside the victim's pajama pants and touched her vagina” the affidavit said.

Haggenmacher was also accused of touching the child's chest and buttocks.

In the initial incident report, the child told police 2 younger siblings were asleep in the top bunk when the assaults occurred.

After finding probable cause, Craighead County District Court Judge Keith Blackman set Haggenmacher's bond at $2,500 and ordered him to appear in circuit court on May 29.
