BEAUMONT, Texas- A Silsbee man has been indicted on federal child exploitation charges in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston today.
Adam Dale Isaacks, 39, was named in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Dec. 7, 2022, charging him with six counts of transportation of a minor for sexual activity.
According to prosecutors, in 2020 and 2021, Isaacks was a youth coach and president of the Evadale Little League Baseball organization and a trusted member of the community.
