WASHBURN COUNTY -- The Court has made a finding of incompetence for a woman charged with allegedly conspiring to commit child sexual assault in Washburn County.

DrydenWire.com reported in July 2020 that Amanda Nickels and Aaron Miller were charged criminally following an investigation into conversations allegedly held by the two in which they discussed locating a young girl for Miller to have intercourse with and potentially impregnate.

Miller repeatedly questioned Nickels on the progress of the search for a juvenile female, stating that he would not come to visit her if she can’t get a juvenile female for the sexual encounter, according to a criminal complaint filed in Washburn County Circuit Court. During an interview with investigators, Nickels stated that Miller wanted to “have a family” with her and the “little girl”. Nickels also said that the age Miller preferred for a juvenile female, age 9 or 10, was pedophile age and that Miller would go to jail.

On September 29, 2020, the Court signed an Order of Commitment for Nickels, according to online circuit court records; following a hearing on September 23, 2020, at which Nickels was found to be incompetent to proceed on the criminal charges.

Miller remains in custody on a $10,000 cash bond.
