Conway man charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl

A Conway man has been charged with sexually assaulted a minor in Columbia, according to the Richland County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert Anthony Miller, 46, of Conway was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor involving his friend’s 11-year-old daughter, said Deputy Curtis Wilson.

The charge stemmed from November 2007 when the incident occurred at an RV lot on Rosewood Drive and Assembly Street in Columbia where people were staying and tailgating for the University of South Carolina and University of Florida football game, Wilson said. The incident occurred the night before the game.

The girl’s father learned of the incident after he read her journal earlier this year, which detailed the event, Wilson said. The girl’s father, who was friends with Miller, contacted police Jan. 11 and Miller turned himself into police to face the charge.
