John Allen McMillian, 67, has been charged with 17 counts of indecent liberties with a child. McMillian, a native of Olin, was apprehended on Friday. His first appearance in court was today.
McMillian was charged after a relative was examined at an area hospital, prompting an investigator from the Department of Social Services contacted authorities in Iredell County. The victim is 5 years old.
Authorities also said another possible victim has come forward in this case. That person allegedly had multiple incidents with McMillian between 1994 and 1995.
