$5M bail for HIV positive man charged with sexual assault




 

An HIV-positive Chicago man was ordered held in lieu of $5 million bail Sunday for allegedly sodomizing a male teenager after the victim refused to have sex for money.

Kevin T. Miller, 48, of the 1500 block of West Birchwood Avenue, was charged with criminal sexual assault in the incident, which took place Saturday, according to court records.

Miller and a 16-year-old were at a mutual acquaintance's home Saturday in the same building where Miller lives, according to Assistant State's Attorney Elizabeth Dibler.

She said Miller offered the teen $100 for sex but the teen refused and went to the bathroom.

He followed the victim into the bathroom and grabbed him, Dibler said.

They struggled, Miller pulled down the victim's pants and sodomized him, Dibler said.

The teen broke free, left the bathroom, grabbed a vodka bottle and hit Miller in the head, Dibler said.

Miller had a bandage on his head Sunday when he appeared in Cook County Bond Court.

The victim ran out of the apartment and a witness called police, Dibler said.

Miller told police he was HIV positive, Dibler said.
