CORPUS CHRISTI -- Former Robstown police officer Ernest Martinez appeared in court today to receive the conditions of his bond.
Martinez is accused of sexual assault after allegations surfaced that he had sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Judge Jose Longoria looked Martinez directly in the eyes and spoke firmly when he told him he cannot have any contact with children for any reason.
He is also required to stay away from churches, schools, malls and anywhere children might be.
Martinez will have to wear a GPS ankle monitor and has a curfew of 8 pm.
Martinez was expressionless and spoke softly as the judge set his bond at $200 thousand dollars.
When the judge asked Martinez if he had a lawyer, he told him that he planned to hire Terry Shamsie. He said his family was still working on getting the money to pay for his attorney.
The judge also asked Martinez if he has a place to stay once he is released from jail. Martinez said he would have to make special arrangements to stay somewhere without kids around.
Again, the judge repeated that Martinez was not allowed to be around any children at all.
A trial date still has not been set in the case.
