A 17-year-old Siren, WI man has been charged with repeated sexual assault of a 6-year-old girl.
Tyler T. Miller, 17, is facing charges of Class B Felony Repeated Sexual Assault of a Child following an investigation into a report that he had exposed his genitals to a 6-year-old girl.
According to the criminal complaint, the Burnett County Sheriff’s Department received a report from Child Protective Services which stated that Miller had confessed to social services that the child had walked into his bedroom while his genitals were exposed. The report went on to state that Miller further admitted to calling the child into his bedroom on a second occasion.
A social worker conducted a forensic interview with a sibling of the child victim. During the interview, the sibling stated that Miller had the 6-year-old girl perform sexual acts with him on multiple occasions. The sibling also stated that although Miller had asked her to engage with him in sexual activity she had told him no.
On August 27, 2018, law enforcement interviewed Miller, who allegedly admitted not only to exposing his genitals to the child, but also to sexually assaulting her on multiple occasions. Miller was placed under arrest following the interview.
If convicted as charged, Miller faces a potential maximum sentence of 60 years confinement in state prison.
Online circuit court records show that on August 28, 2018, Miller was placed on a $2,500 cash bail bond with conditions that he has no contact with the victim or any children under the age of 16. The Court further ordered that Miller must be on an electronic monitor if released from jail and that he may not leave the four-county area (Burnett, Polk, Washburn, and Barron).
No future court date was listed in online circuit court records at the time of this post.
Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
