Juan Lauderdale – Repeat Sex Offender – Violent Predator

A convicted sex offender accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl last month in La Marque was arrested at a relative’s home in Somerville, police said.

Juan Lauderdale, 32, is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. He is also charged with burglary of habitation, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and failure to register as a sex offender. All of the incidents occurred in La Marque, police said.

He is being held in the Galveston County jail on $370,000 bail.

Police said he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl on Dec. 29 at an apartment in the 1330 block of Montgomery.

The girl had gone to the apartment to have Lauderdale tattoo her name on her right arm near her shoulder, said La Marque Police Detective Geoff Price.

After he tattooed the girl, Lauderdale made sexual advances toward her, but she told him that he was too old for her, Price said.

Then he pulled out knife, beat her and sexually assaulted her, police said.

“He beat her pretty bad,” Price added.

Lauderdale drove the girl to her apartment complex in Texas City after the attack and dropped her off, authorities say. She told her neighbor that she had been assaulted and the neighbor called police.

Police found him after they stopped one his relatives in Somerville driving a truck that Lauderdale had reportedly stolen. Lauderdale was arrested at his sister’s home in the Burleson County city.

Price said Lauderdale served time in state prison for a 1996 conviction for aggravated sexual assault of a child. He was registered as a sex offender because of that conviction, Price added, but had recently moved without notifying authorities.
