A Temple man was arrested and charged with the aggravated sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl over a period of time.

Codey Moore, 28, turned himself in on the April 18 warrant issued by Bell County Justice of the Peace Cliff Coleman, Bell County Special Crimes Unit Lt. Michele Cianci said Monday.

The alleged sexual assaults happened over a period of time in the area of Hillside Drive in Troy, and the last time was in March, Cianci said. The parents contacted the Special Crimes Unit about the reported inappropriate sexual contact with their daughter, and the girl made an outcry to a forensic interviewer.

During an interview after he was read his Miranda rights, Moore allegedly admitted he had sexual contact with the girl, Cianci said.

Moore was booked at 3:55 p.m. Thursday into the Bell County Jail, where he was held Monday in lieu of a $250,000 bond.
