The father and son accused of raping two teenage sisters waived arraignment in Roane County Criminal Court on Monday. A status hearing is set March 10, 2014.
George William Miles Sr., also known as Will, faces six counts of statutory rape by an authority figure. His son, George William Miles Jr., faces six counts of aggravated statutory rape. The alleged crimes occurred between Jan. 1, 2011, and June 30, 2013.
Kingston Police Chief Jim Washam said the victims videotaped one of the episodes, and the evidence was taken to police.
Miles Sr., whom Washam said called himself a minister, is out of jail on a $5,000 bond. His son is out on a $3,000 bond.
Attorney Bob Vogel, who represents Miles Sr., spoke only briefly.
“I think it’s hard on the kids,” Vogel said. “I think it’s hard on their mother. I think it’s hard on my client to have it in the media as much as it is because it’s a difficult situation.”
