An 81-year-old northern Iowa man convicted in the sexual abuse of two 8-year-old girls has asked for a new trial.
Clarence Miller’s motion is scheduled to be heard Tuesday morning in Winnebago County District Court in Forest City. He’s scheduled to be sentenced later in the day.
A jury convicted Miller, of Thompson, on Oct. 4 of two counts of sexual abuse involving the girls. Prosecutors say Miller assaulted the girls at his home between January 2010 and August 2012. Miller has denied any sexual abuse occurred.
