Weatherford man charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child

Michael Elliott

A Parker County grand jury indicted Michael Lynn Elliott, 49, of Weatherford, on Nov. 5 on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child by sexual contact.

On Feb. 12, a Parker County Sheriff’s Office investigator watched a forensic interview with a 14-year-old female at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Parker County, according to the probable cause affidavit. During the interview the female made an outcry of inappropriate sexual contact by Elliott on more than one occasion in 2017 at a residence in Springtown.

The 14-year-old said Elliott would come into her bedroom, show her pornography and touch her in a sexual manner, according to the affidavit. This occurred multiple times and always the same way.

“Initially, the defendant denied any sexual contact with the victim. However, as the interview progressed, the defendant stated that he could not remember if he touched the victim,” according to the affidavit. “The defendant said he sometimes can’t remember when he drinks alcohol in excess. The defendant said he would apologize to the victim.”

Elliott was arrested and booked into the Parker County Jail on Sept. 6, where he remains held on a $50,000 bond.

“Mr. Elliott is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child. If convicted of these charges, he faces sentences of five to 99 years or life and two to 20 years in prison, respectively, as well as a fine of up to $10,000 on each,” Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “If convicted, he will also be required to submit to lifetimes sex offender registration.”
