WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) UPDATE: A new trial date is set for a man facing multiple charges of sexual assault of a child.

48-year-old Jason Carlile, who has previous convictions for sex crimes involving children, is jailed on 5 counts of sexual assault of a child and two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Tuesday morning during a status hearing in 78th District Court Judge Barney Fudge signed a special setting for a jury trial on September 3.

Additional motions, in this case, will be heard Friday.

Carlile was arrested last November for an alleged sexual assault of a child in 2006 and was released when his mother posted his bond after she and her husband won a $15 million lotto drawing.

Then prosecutors obtained 7 sealed indictments in may for alleged sexual assaults of a child and bonds were set at more than $4 million.

Prosecutors said he is a flight risk, and the judge ruled he must have a GPS monitor in place before being released on bond again.

Carlile has a conviction of indecency with a child in Wichita county in 1994 with a three-year prison sentence and a conviction in Archer County for purchase of a child in 2006 In which a 15- year old girl was sold by her mother for $3,000.

He served three years probation on that charge.
