Neo Arez Michell, 18 years old, has been charged in Great Falls with sexually assaulting a child dozens of times.

The mother of the child told police that she had seen Michell rubbing his penis on the girl.

She said that she had been told that a similar incident had happened a month earlier, but said that she was unsure that she could believe the allegation, according to court documents.

The victim reportedly told police that Michell had performed sexual acts on her approximately 100 times.

When questioned by police, Michell reportedly made statements during the interview such as "it was my fault" and "it was not what she wanted," and "I asked her if she wanted me to stop, she yes, and I didn’t stop," according to the charging documents.

Court documents note that Michell does not have any felony convictions, but has been cited for several traffic offenses, including an injury crash.

Prosecutors requested that bond for Michell be set at $50,000.
