The Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office said Jessica Renee Kelley, 30, from Houston, was charged with injury to a child. In September, Precinct 3 Constable’s Office detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children at Safe Harbor, received a complaint on behalf of a ten-year-old disabled child who could not verbally communicate. A special education teacher reached out to Child Protective Services to report suspected child abuse. Precinct 3 detectives started an investigation, and found probable cause that Jessica Renee Kelley allegedly physically abused the child and caused the child injuries while employed to care for the child, according to the Constable’s Office. Constable’s Officials said the injuries that were observed were bruising around the wrists from the wrists being tied together. The abuse allegedly happened inside a residential home health care facility located in The Woodlands.

Kelley has been charged with injury to a child and is currently in the Montgomery County Jail.
