Texas– A Lubbock police officer was allowed to resign just hours before he was arrested for the sexual abuse of his two adopted daughters, ages 12 and 16. Jason Wesley Hignight, 32, graduated the police academy in June of 2010, after passing an extensive background investigation. The victims were adopted after being fostered by Hignight and his wife. The oldest girl stated that the sexual assaults had been going on for three (3) years, usually occurring on his days off (Tues/Wed) and when the mother was not around. Hignight was undone when she unexpectedly came into the girls’ bedroom and found him exposing his penis to the 16-year-old.
