FRIENDSWOOD — Police have charged five men with sex offenses — including a former Friendswood youth softball coach who was on probation after pleading guilty to enticing a child in April.

Ryan Jon Loofboro, 36, of Dickinson, was charged Thursday with harboring a runaway after officers found him with a 16-year-old girl he was accused of sexually assaulting in 2012, according to a statement from the Friendswood Police Department.

The girl was reported as a runaway this week, police said. An officer who went to speak with Loofboro at his Dickinson business saw the girl leaving the building through a back door, and both were detained, according to the police statement.

Loofboro, a former assistant coach in the Friendswood Girls Softball Association, was charged with aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a child and accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl during the 2012 softball season.

Loofboro pleaded guilty to the lesser offense of enticing a child with the intent to commit a felony in April and was sentenced to four years community supervision.

The terms of Loofboro’s probation required him to refrain from contacting his alleged victim, according to court records.

His bond was set at $1,500.

Loofboro may face additional charges, police spokeswoman Officer Lisa Price said.

Candido Martinez, 20, of Webster was charged Wednesday with two counts of indecent exposure in connection with the incident on July 20, when two 19-year-old women told police they were followed home to the 1300 block of Woodvine Street, Price said. 

The women told officers a man approached their vehicle, lowered his pajama pants and began touching himself, driving away when one of the women called police, Price said. The women reported the license plate number of the man’s vehicle and a description to police.

Officers found the vehicle being driven by Martinez’s father, police said. Martinez was interviewed by police and jailed Wednesday on a $3,000 bond.

Paul Martin Nallie, 41, of Spring was charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child and jailed Wednesday on a $150,000 bond. Nallie is accused of abusing a girl in Friendswood in June while out on bond for an indecency with a child charge, according to police and court records.

Charles Lord, 43, of Texas City was charged with failure to register as a sex offender and detained during a traffic stop in Friendswood on Wednesday. Lord was registered as a sex offender in New York, but told officers he had been living in Texas for more than three years, according to a statement from police.

Lord remained at the Galveston County Jail on a $250,000 bond.

Gary Quinton Scott, 26, of Houston was charged with sexual assault of a child and turned himself in to Friendswood police on Thursday, police said.

Scott is accused of assaulting a 14-year-old child while he was staying at a Friendswood home last summer, police said.

Scott was being held on a $40,000 bond.

Take them off the streets forever!

Do not just give them "community service." They will be repeat offenders unless they are in prison.

This is serious, folks!

A 1500 dollar bond???? For a repeat sex offender, in violation of parole?
150 bucks out of pocket is my Diet Cokes average expense.

Put these clowns pictures on the big billboard along I-45 where Buzbee's been patting himself on the back, and give everybody driving by a good look at what trash looks like...then, gets serious and actually punish them...

Oh, BTW, welcome back, Pflinn.........

Make geldings out of them first, then put them in jail for life.


Really $1500 bond, now that's a crime in itself! Think of the children these thugs have messed up. Throw these low life with others that have committed this type of crime, they certainly deserve each other.[sad]
