CEDAR CITY – A 50-year-old Cedar City man is facing 10 first-degree felonies for aggravated sexual abuse of a child following a criminal investigation involving multiple female juvenile victims.
The Iron County Sheriff’s Office arrested Milford Haley Thursday on suspicion of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. Authorities booked him into the Iron County Correctional Facility on $70,000 bail. He remained in jail at the time this story was published.
According to charging documents, ICSO Detective Cpl. Nate Houchen interviewed five separate individuals who alleged Haley had inappropriately touched their genitals and chest on several different occasions.
Each of the victims, many of whom are older now than when the alleged incidents occurred, told police about several different incidents they could remember that occurred through 2006 to the present.
Some of the victims were as young as five or six years old when the suspect reportedly touched them with his hand both outside and underneath their clothes.
The victims reported that the incidents happened in various situations including when the children were in the car, at the computer or watching a movie. Documents show the victims’ stories were similar in how the alleged perpetrator abused them.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
