A man suspected of “substantial sexual contact” with a child over a two-year span was arraigned Tuesday in Sacramento County Superior Court on 17 counts connected to the alleged acts and is being held in lieu of $3 million bail on the charges.
Sacramento County District Attorney’s prosecutors in a complaint allege Andy Karl Kelly, 47, committed a series of progressively lewd acts against the girl including sexually penetrating the child beginning when she was 4 years old in February 2015, until July of this year.
The charges, read by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Michael Sweet, include lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14 years of age, sex acts with a child 10 years of age or younger and attempted lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age.
Kelly, in the complaint, also is accused of having the child lick his body and orally copulate him, and of attempting to incorporate one of the child’s dolls in a sex act.
