Thomas Welvaert - Repeat Sex Offender - Third Strike for Texas Scum

  • Conviction date: 8/18/1997
  • Offender's age at conviction: 15
  • Victim Age: 4
  • Conviction date: 1/14/2008
  • Offender's age at conviction: 26
  • Victim Age: 15

  • A convicted sex offender from Hearne remained jailed Monday on $100,000 bond, charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old in Bryan.

    Thomas Welvaert, 27, is accused of sexual assault and indecency with a child.

    Welvaert has two prior sex offender convictions, according to court records.

    He received five years probation in Falls County for aggravated sexual assault of a child in 1997. And just this past January, he received ten years deferred adjudication for sexual assault of a child in Brazos County.

    Officials with the Brazos County District Attorney's office said Welvaert was given deferred adjudication as part of a plea agreement.

    And because this latest charge is in violation of his probation, the DA's office said it can't comment further since it's a pending case.
