UPSHUR COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas law enforcement officer has resigned his position amidst an investigation into allegations of indecency with a child.

Eric Jason Campbell, 41, an Upshur County resident and Mount Pleasant Police officer resigned his position with the Mount Pleasant Police Department before formal charges were brought against him.

Campbell was arrested Tuesday in Upshur County, says Billy Byrd, the Upshur County District Attorney.

Originally, Campbell was taken in to custody on indecency with a child charges, but now, Campbell is facing aggravated sexual assault of a child.

A deputy with the Upshur County Sheriff's Office says the child was under the age of 13.

He's held in the Upshur County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

The case is still under investigation.
