MONTGOMERY COUNTY
Charles Andrew Capps, 21, is charged with sexual assault of a child and online solicitation of a minor

A Texas man raped a teenage girl to avenge a similar attack by her family member on one of his relatives years earlier, police said.

Charles Andrew Capps, 21, from New Caney, reportedly confessed to cops he assaulted the 14-year-old after sending her lewd photos via Facebook.

It was, he said, a calculated revenge for an alleged similar assault on his own 14-year-old relative five years ago.

Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office first heard about the incident in January, reports the Houston Chronicle.

That was when the girl’s mom told them a man was sending the teen inappropriate pictures through the social networking site.

She messaged the man to say the girl was only 14, but he taunted her.

Officers traced the account, which belonged to a registered sex offender, later deducing Capps had hacked into and taken control of it.

Capps was arrested when he walked into the police station on January 31.

He reportedly admitted to sending the pictures and having sex with the girl.

He claimed it was consensual, which the victim denies. Under Texas law, a minor cannot consent to having sex.

Capps has been charged with sexual assault of a child and online solicitation of a minor – both felonies.

He is being held in custody on a $180,000 bond.
