NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Harold Eley with the Newport News Police Department said that William Henry Miller III, 38, was arrested on a Capias Wednesday after failing to appear at a scheduled court appearance related to a sexual assault case.
In early January, a 12-year-old girl told her Newport News school counselor that she had been molested by a male family member. The investigation into her claim revealed that she had been assaulted, but by a close family friend, not a family member.
Investigators suspected Miller to have touched the child inappropriately on several occasions when she was in his home and arrested him on March 29.
On Wednesday, Miller was arrested on a Capias because he failed to appear on a scheduled court appearance related to the same case.
Newport News police officers are in the middle of a massive operation to get wanted criminals out of the neighborhoods. They are rounding up everyone who has an outstanding warrant.
