Joseph Michael Mullikin is accused of sexually assaulting a child under the age of 12 nearly 16 months ago. He was arrested Tuesday, Nov. 22 and is being held on a million dollar bond.
According to a heavily redacted arrest report, the child reported the sexual abuse more than a year after the occurrences. The child also referred to Mullikin as “uncle”. The abuse involved Mullikin touching and penetrating the girl’s vagina.
During the investigation, police interviewed a person whose name was withheld that advised that Mullikin had been molested by a male family member as a child and he watched pornography during his teenage years.
Mullikin’s attorney, William Wade advised him not to give a statement in this investigation.
