Aaron Clay Kelly of Weatherford faces a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child, sheriff’s deputies say.

A 32-year-old man pulled up to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office on Friday afternoon and told deputies he wanted to turn himself in for pedophilia, deputies say.

Aaron Clay Kelly of Weatherford faces a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child and was booked into the Parker County Jail after deputies say he admitted to sexually assaulting a sleeping 9-year-old girl and making a video recording of it on his cellphone.

Deputies say Kelly told them in an interview that he couldn’t remember when the assault had taken place, but that he believed it happened within the past year.

He said that about two hours earlier, he’d been looking at photos on his phone with a person whom police didn’t identify when the video came up. The other person angrily told Kelly to leave, deputies said.

Kelly told deputies that he threw his phone into the Brazos River and decided to turn himself in, deputies say.

The video was saved to Kelly’s Google account, deputies say. He was arrested without incident and his bond was set at $30,000.

According to Parker County jail records, Kelly has been arrested numerous times in Parker County since 2004, mainly for crimes such as theft, not having car insurance, criminal trespass, fighting and driving without a license.

He was also jailed in Tarrant County for 60 days in 2009 on charges stemming from a 2005 theft, court records show.
