HEWITT (February 11, 2014) A Hewitt man was held Tuesday in the McLennan County Jail after he was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child in an incident involving a 16-year-old girl at a local motel.
Tyler William Edmondson, 22, was ordered held on a $20,000 bond, McLennan County online jail records showed.
Edmondson was arrested Monday after Hewitt police obtained a warrant for him following a report to authorities about the assault, Deputy Hewitt police Chief Tuck Saunders said Tuesday.
The girl was not injured and was not forced into the sexual encounter at a motel in Hewitt, but state law says that at her age she cannot consent to a sexual act, Saunders said.
