Montgomery County DA: Guardian faces new child sexual assault charges
Leticia Lowery already has an online solicitation pending for a Harris County child case.
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – Montgomery County private guardian Leticia Lowery receives a law lesson after her second arrest this year.
Leticia Lowery, 39, is charged with Child Sexual Assault and Child Sexual Performance in Montgomery County. Lowery already has charges pending in Harris County for online solicitation of a child in an unrelated incident.
According to an affidavit, Lowery had sex with a 15-year-old boy in his home study. In a separate incident, Lowery allegedly asked a 13-year-old woman to perform a sex act on a boy in the guardian’s van while she watched.
It is not known whether the alleged victims were undergoing tutoring at the time.
“I don’t want to talk about the nature of the relationship, primarily to protect the identity of the victims,” Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Shanna Redwine said. “But we’re certainly concerned that because of Ms. Lowery’s work and the nature of her job, she has had access to many, many children.”
In May of this year, Lowery was charged in Harris County with online solicitation of a minor. She has been accused of sharing nude photos and offers of sex via text message with a 15-year-old boy.
She was on bail for the alleged crime when she was arrested again this week in Montgomery County.

Now, investigators are asking all parents or other concerned people to come forward.
“She has a presumption of innocence until she goes to court,” Redwine said. “But if anyone has any information about them, we sure want to know.” “This is an active investigation into Ms. Lowery’s contact with children.”
We are told that Lowery is also a former teacher.
Here are some tips if you are looking for a guardian or anyone else who can take care of your children:
- Order background checks
- Review student feedback
- Meeting in public
- Have an adult present
- Keep personal information private
Lowery was still booked into the Montgomery County Jail in Conroe on Friday afternoon.
The DA’s office is asking anyone with information about Lowery’s contact with children or anyone concerned that a child may be a victim of Lowery to contact investigator Jeremy Thomas at (936) 539-7800.
