Registered sex offender faces new charge of sex offenses of young girl

Charged

Kevin Lee Miller

SALISBURY — A Salisbury man once featured on the “To Catch a Predator” television show faces new charges after Rowan County authorities say a young girl reported that he touched her inappropriately.

Kevin Lee Miller, 46, was charged with felony indecent liberties with a child and felony statutory sex offense with a child under 15. He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $75,000 secured bond.

The incident occurred Nov. 25, and the child was an acquaintance of Miller, officials said. The girl told her mother about the offense and they reported it to authorities.

Miller, of the 1300 block of Hurley School Road, is a registered sex offender. He was placed on the registry in 2007 after his arrest as part of a sting in Clackamas, Oregon.

Miller, along with five other men, went to an Oregon home with alcohol and condoms after they had communicated with someone they believed was an underage girl.

Oregon detectives had rented the home and chatted online with the men, posing as young girls, authorities said. When the men entered the home, they were arrested.

Miller was charged with second-degree attempted rape and first-degree attempted sexual abuse in that incident.
