INDICE DE GALERIAS
ALLISON, Iowa - A former school bus driver in north Iowa appeared in court on Monday for the first of three trials.
80-year-old Clarence Miller is being accused of six counts of second-degree sexual abuse of girls under the age of 12.
Miller is being accused of abusing girls whose families he was so close to, that one family referred to his as 'grandpa'.
Following the opening statements made by the state and Clarence Miller's lawyer, one of the alleged victims took the stand gave a testimony about what she said Miller allegedly did to her.
Defense lawyer, John Sorenson, addressed jurors with his opening statement prior to the testimony and offered them an explanation about Clarence and his wife and how they are thought of as outstanding members of society
The prosecution took their turn and used their time to shock jury members and tell them about the explicit medical evidence they have for their side of the case.
Assistant Iowa Attorney General, Susan Krisko talked about a therapy clinic that the victims went to following the accusations and said that both girls were seen by a nurse practitioner who performed a physical exam.
The results both confirmed that "both of these little girls had findings consistent with what they said the defendant did to them,” Krisko said.
After the jury heard this information, the defense went on to talk about Clarence and his family and how their home is usually seen as one of service, openness and love to anyone in need in the community.
While Miller was a bus driver when the allegations and arrest were made, the north Iowa school district says the alleged abuse did not happen on school property.
Monday was the first of three trials for Miller on similar charges after a judge agreed to have him face trial for different groups of victims.
