Lincoln police might have new evidence to present in their case against a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a minor back in the early 1990’s. Michael Miller was arrested in June 2012.
At the time of his arrest, the 57-year-old man was accused of assaulting two children. However, since one of those cases dated back to the 1980’s, the statute of limitations had run out. So Miller was charged with one case.
Miller waived his right to a preliminary hearing last week. Since his case went public, police have reported that three more alleged victims have come forward. They are still gathering information on the three men who are now adults. Police will eventually consult with the county attorney regarding additional charges. Regardless of whether the statute of limitations has expired, their statements could be entered into evidence and ultimately strengthen prosecution of the two charges of first degree sexual assault.
In the case that is being prosecuted, the victim told police he met Miller outside an arcade.
