The Harris County Sheriff’s Office case was reopened, and a third victim came forward, a male who also was abused by Howard.

That victim told investigators that Howard abused sexually from the age of 12 until he was 15-years old.

The victim gave a detailed description of the Howards lap top computer, which is now in the custody of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office
.
He was suspected of file-sharing child pornography while in Europe.

Dwayne Howard was previously convicted in 1998 for an Indecency with a child charge and was sentenced to 6 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
