A 51-year-old Englewood man was ordered held on $350,000 bail Saturday, accused of sexually assaulting a young relative.
Orvid Miller appeared before Cook County Judge Laura Sullivan on a charge of predatory criminal sexual assault.
The minor girl was a guest at Miller's home Tuesday when he assaulted her, according to Assistant Cook County State's Attorney Martha Kross. Another relative witnessed the incident and told the girl's mother, Kross said.
The victim initially denied anything had happened. But she told her mother about the assault on Friday, explaining she had been too afraid of Miller to talk about it in his presence at his house, Kross said.
Miller is scheduled to return to court for a Monday preliminary hearing.
