TAYLOR, Texas (KXAN) — A man with a lengthy criminal history is now charged with sexually abusing a young girl with autism. Police say Ben Stoglin, 56, assaulted the girl inside a storage building March 23, 2014.
The 13-year-old girl was interviewed the next day at the Williamson County Children’s Advocacy Center and a sexual assault exam was performed.
Forensic experts notified police of a DNA match on Jan. 21, and police tracked down Stoglin five days later outside an HEB in Round Rock. The story Stoglin told police matched what the girl said, according to the affidavit, and he was booked into the Williamson County Jail.
He is charged with aggravated assault of a child and bond was set at $200,000.
Stoglin has a lengthy criminal history in Williamson County. He was first arrested in Taylor in 1996 and convicted of burglary. He’s been arrested almost 20 times in the county.
