According to Ellis County jail records, ex-Maypearl police Chief Kevin Coffey is behind bars and being held on $350,000 bond.

The Maypearl City Council gathered on Saturday, intending to fire the 49-year-old Coffey, but instead accepted his resignation.

Coffey was arrested and taken into custody on Wednesday, charged with sexual assault of a child, indecency with a child by exposure, indecency with a child by sexual contact and sexual performance by a child.

Coffey was put on administrative leave with pay July 13 after searches of his home and the police station. Investigators say the girl is now 16.

Maypearl is a town of about 900, located 30 miles southwest of Dallas.
