A 25-year-old Belton man is behind bars for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

David Earl Lovato faces a charge of aggravated sexual assault after Bell County Sheriff's Investigators presented a case to the Bell County District Attorney's Office on July 7.

Bell County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a reported sexual assault on Elm Grove Spur, south of Belton, on March 30. Deputies spoke with a man who told them his 13-year-old daughter had snuck out and went to a party at Owl Creek Park with Lovato, and the two had sex.

Investigators with the Special Crimes unit conducted the investigation. They interviewed the 13-year-old girl and witnesses, as well as collected evidence, and found that the girl had been a victim of sexual assault.

Lovato turned himself in to the Bell County Jail on July 8 and posted a $75,000 bond and was released.
