Washington County (August 21, 2022) – Daniel Miller has been charged with child molestation after Sandersville police received a phone call from Tippecanoe County Sherriff’s Office in Lafayette, Indiana, regarding a statutory rape case when a 14-year-old girl arrived in their ER department complaining of abdominal pain.
Sandersville police spoke with the officer from Tippecanoe County, who informed them that a 14- year old girl had shown up at the ER department complaining of abdominal pain. After questioning by hospital staff and her mother, the girl confessed that she had been having sex with her great-uncle, Miller.
While the girl claims no force was involved, and the sex was consensual, the teen was only fourteen, and her great-uncle was forty five years old.
