According to court documents, West was arrested for sexual indecency with a child – a state charge – in February 2022.
A 10-year-old girl said West had been sexually abusing her by forcing her to perform sexual acts on him, according to court documents.
After West was arrested, his wife went through photos and videos that were stored in a cloud storage account linked to his phone, according to court documents.
She found multiple photos and videos of a 3-year-old girl performing sexual acts on West, court documents said.
West admitted that he forced the child to perform the sexual acts and recorded them.
As of Thursday, West remained in the Lubbock County Detention Center. The state charge for indecency with a child was still pending.
