Federal prison employee charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child

GROVES - An employee of the Beaumont Federal Correctional Complex has been arrested after a video was discovered showing him allegedly sexually assaulting a child.

Shane Gotte, 48, was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child on Friday, October 13, according to a post on the Groves Police Department Facebook page.

A report of the possible possession of child pornography was initially made to the Groves Police Department on October 12 concerning a video that individuals had found according to the post.

When investigators responded they discovered that the video showed a sexual assault and eventually identified Gotte as being the suspect committing the act in the video the post said.

The video, which was immediately reported to police after it was found, appeared to have been shot some time in 2015 according to the post.

Immediately after an arrest warrant was issued for Gotte on October 13 investigators took him into custody without incident at his workplace at the federal prison the post said.

There are no other suspects in the case which is still under investigation according to police.
