A home health care worker has been charged with Injury to a Child after the abuse of a disabled child under her care in The Woodlands was reported to CPS.
According to reports from the Precinct 3 Constable's Office, back in September of 2019, Safe Harbor detectives received a complaint on behalf of a 10-year-old disabled child who can not verbally communicate. A special education teacher reached out to Child Protective Services to report injuries on the child.
Pct. 3 detectives started an investigation and found probable cause that Jessica Renee Kelley (30, Houston) physically abused the child and caused injuries while employed to care for the child. The abuse occurred inside a residential home health care facility located in The Woodlands.
Jessica Kelley was charged with Injury to a Child and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on November 8.
