By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

No stranger to the Bandera County justice system, former businessman Nathan "Nate" Hay, 41, faces yet another trio of felony charges.
On Monday, Oct. 6, Hay was arrested for continuous sexual abuse of a child, sexual assault of a child and prohibited sexual contact. As of press time, he remained in the Bandera County Jail under bonds that top $200,000. Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Lynn Holt signed the warrants for Hay's latest arrest.
In May, a Bandera County Grand Jury indicted Hay for manufacture and delivery of over 400 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, possession of chemicals used in the production of methamphetamine and child endangerment.
If convicted on the first series of charges, Hay faces a maximum of 99 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000 for the first-degree felony drug possession charge. Possession of drug-making supplies is a second-degree felony and child endangerment is a state jail felony.
Hay had been out on bond since his indictment on the first round of charges.
