Springfield man indicted, accused of sexually assaulting 3 year old

A man accused of sexually assaulting a 3-year-old has been indicted in Clark County Common Pleas Court.

Kenneth Sammons was indicted on gross sexual imposition and domestic violence charges. The charges stem from an October 2016 incident where he is alleged to have assaulted a 3-year-old while the child slept.

Clark County Deputy Debra Strileckyj wrote in an affidavit that she responded to a call and spoke with a witness. The witness told her that she, Sammons and the 3-year-old allegedly were sleeping in the same bed at the Drake Motel when she felt the bed shake.

“She pulled back the blankets and saw Sammons completely naked,” the report says.

The affidavit says the child was sleeping and Sammons allegedly was knowingly assaulting the child.

The Clark County grand jury met Monday and also returned the following indictments, according to Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson:

Brian S. Miller, 46: forgery and receiving stolen property.
