In one case, Eaker was convicted of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person younger than 13. A second count of the same charge was dropped in a plea agreement.

In another case, he was convicted of felony second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim younger than 13 . A charge of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct was dropped in a plea agreement.

The alleged victim, who is almost two years younger than Eaker, reported the several incidents to the Austin Police Department on Sept. 18, 2009.

The woman said the sexual assaults began when she was about eight-years-old and that Eaker would touch her in “inappropriate places,” which led to sexual intercourse on several occasions.

When Eaker spoke with police, he admitted to “sexual experimentation” with the girl and said she was five or six years old and he was seven or eight years old when it began. He said the experimentation continued until about the age of 17.

Eaker characterized his interactions with the girl as “playing a game of house” and “having sex.”
