Michael Miller, accused of sexually assaulting woman he met on dating website, appears in court

Affidavit: 2 others accuse Miller of sex assault

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - A man who is suspected of sexually assaulting women he met on Internet dating sites and other websites was advised of a felony charge against him in Jefferson County court on Monday.  

Michael David Miller, 28, of Aurora, faces one count of sexual assault in connection with an alleged attack on a Golden woman in May.

However, Jefferson County sheriff's officials say Miller has made admissions indicating that other victims may exist who have not yet come forward. Officials are asking women who believe they have been victimized by Miller to call sheriff's Investigator Michalene Parreco at 303-271-5623.

According to an arrest affidavit, sheriff's investigators have identified two other women who previously accused Miller of sexually assaulting them after they met him online.

Miller has been held in jail without bond in since police arrested him on July 3. But a judge set Miller's bond at $10,000 on Monday and he posted it and was released from jail in the afternoon.

--Woman met Miller on OKCupid.com--

The investigation began on June 2, when the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office was contacted by a Golden woman who said she'd been sexually assault by a man she met on the dating website, OKCupid.com.

The woman told investigators that, after posting her profile on OKCupid.com, she received a text message in May through the website from a man using the screen name "mike22486." Those numbers match Michael David Miller's birth date. His OKCupid.com profile said Mike was 5 feet 10 inches tall and lived in Aurora.

On May 30, Mike messaged her, asking if she wanted to get together. She explained that "he liked to spend time with people one-on-one, so he could get to know her better."

The woman met Mike at the Golden light rail station and they went back to her apartment for pizza. She told investigators Miller become increasingly aggressive and sexually assaulted her at her apartment, the affidavit stated.  

--Miller had 2010 sexual assault arrest in Aurora--

Miller was also charged with the sexual assault of another woman in Aurora in 2010, who told Aurora Police Department investigators he raped her after she responded to a Craigslist ad he posted, saying he was looking for a date. Arapahoe County prosecutors eventually dismissed that case against Miller.

In a statement last week, the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office said: "In 2011, [then] District Attorney Carol Chambers' office reviewed the facts of this case, consulted with -- and sought input from -- the victim as to the substance of the case and her interests in proceeding. Based upon all of the information and input available, the prosecutors assigned to the case decided to dismiss the case in the interests of justice."

In 2012, a third woman told Denver police Miller sexually assaulted her after they met through a Yahoo gaming web site. He was never arrested or charged in that case.

Jefferson County investigators have interviewed the Aurora woman and the Denver woman about their allegations against Miller.

CALL7 Investigators learned that, in both the 2010 and 2012 cases, police collected rape kits from the victims, which were never tested until this year -- after a new law that was prompted by a year-long CALL7 investigation took effect.
