LOGAN — A 48-year-old Smithfield man has been arrested and charged with molesting a young girl. Tyler R. Miles was booked into the Cache County Jail Monday morning.
Prosecutors allege Miles sexually assaulted a nine-year-old girl, touching her inappropriately. The victim was allegedly an acquaintance of the suspect.
Miles was arraigned in 1st District Court Tuesday afternoon. He appeared by video from the jail. Prosecutors charged him with two counts of sex abuse of a child, a second-degree felony.
State attorney Spencer Walsh told the court, due to the nature of the allegations and the age of the victim, prosecutors were considering amending the charges to aggravated sexual abuse. He also asked the defendant be denied bail.
Judge Kevin Allen set bail at $75,000 and ordered Miles to not have any contact with children if he is able to get out. He also ordered him to appear again in court January 8.
