Belton Man Charged in Connection to Sexual Assault of 14-Month-Old
A Belton man was in the Bell County Jail Thursday after allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-month-old child.
20-year-old Frank Calvin Neil was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child - a first degree felony. He was booked into jail at 8:48 AM Thursday and his bond was set at $50,000.
The arrest came after a Bell County Sheriff Department investigation of an alleged assault against the child on March 8, 2016. Investigators said they were called after the child was admitted to Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple with signs of having been sexually abused.
According to Julie Moody with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, the child was removed from home and placed in protective custody after a judge ruled the home environment unsafe.
