Uniontown man charged in teen's assault
A Fayette County man was charged Monday with sexually assaulting a female earlier this year when the girl was 15.
Kenneth Lee Miller, 27, of Herman Street in Uniontown is charged with statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault and corruption of minors.
Trooper James Pierce filed charges with District Judge Wendy Dennis.
According to police, the girl, now 16, reported that she and Miller had sexual intercourse several times at her residence when she was 15.
Police said the investigation showed that Miller lied to the girl's mother about his own age in order to win her approval to see the girl.
The investigation also revealed that Miller and the girl exchanged sexually explicit pictures, police said.
Miller was arraigned and released on $50,000 bond.
He faces a preliminary hearing before Dennis on Sept. 18.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
