A veteran investigator of the Smith County Sheriff's Office has resigned after an investigation uncovered he and his wife failed to report the sexual assaults of family members under the age of 13.
Authorities say the husband and wife were aware that the children were being assaulted by another individual in their home but did not report the abuse.
Both were arrested last week. The identities of those involved are not being released to protect the identity of the victims.
