CONROE, Texas – A riding instructor at a horse farm was arrested and charged Thursday morning after an investigation into claims that he sexually assaulted a child.
Michael Hogan, 38, is the owner of Triple H Horse Farm which is located on Chateau Woods Parkway in Conroe.
Montgomery County Precinct 3 Chief Deputy Constable Matt Rodrigue said Hogan would start communicating with the teen, who was older than 14 but younger than 18, through lessons, then would text about meeting up for sex.
“He lured a young female to an area hotel where he committed the crime which is why he is charged with two counts of sexual assault with a child, which is a second-degree felony,” explained Rodrigue.
He said Hogan is accused of talking with the young girl for months through text messages and Snapchat. Rodrigue said the girl came forward to her parents who then contacted the constable’s office.
Now authorities are concerned there could be other victims.
“He had access to a whole lot of kids over a whole lot of time, so we need to get to the bottom of everything,” said Rodrigue. “Cases like this are most concerning because we believe there are more victims that we do not know about."
