Guilty Plea Possible For Accused Murrieta Child Molester

Rudolph James Miller, now of Hemet, faces a charge of committing a lewd and lascivious act on a child under 14.

A preliminary hearing for a 46-year-old man accused of molesting a 12-year-old Murrieta relative in 2008 was taken off the court calendar Friday because the defense indicated a plea deal could be in the offing.

Rudolph James Miller, now of Hemet, faces a charge of committing a lewd and lascivious act on a child under 14.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to eight years in prison.

Miller appeared in court Friday for a preliminary hearing to determine whether evidence warrants a trial but Riverside Superior Court Judge Michael Rushton granted a defense motion to continue the hearing to a later date.

The defense attorney -- Deputy Public Defender Gregory Henderson made a special appearance for DPD Reginald Taylor -- told the judge that the defendant's attorney was currently on another case.

Henderson also stated for the record that counsel believes the case could be resolved and a plea agreement reached, court records indicate.

The matter will be discussed at a felony settlement conference set for Sept. 11.

The incidents came to the attention of the Murrieta Police Department in June 2011, according to a statement filed by police. The victim, now 15, told her two sisters of the alleged acts. The mother reported it to police.

This is why you must watch your kids PEOPLE!!!!!! Brother, Uncle, you never know. No NOT everyone is a child molester but you must act as if you dont know for the protection of your kids. And if he didnt do it then he and other adults need to be more aware of the situations that they put themselves in. Sad Story indeed..........
