COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Richland County deputies say a Conway man sexually assaulted a child younger than 11 while tailgating before a University of South Carolina football game in 2007.

Robert Anthony Miller of Conway is charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 11 for the incident, which deputies said happened the night before USC played Florida in November of 2007.

Deputy Curtis Wilson said Miller knows the victim's father, and the group was tailgating at the RV park on Rosewood Drive and Assembly Street. Wilson said the father found out about this after reading an entry in his daughter's diary about the incident.

According to Wilson, the girl wrote that Miller waited until everyone was sleeping before he assaulted her. After reading the journal the father contacted law enforcement.

Miller is being held in the Alvin S Glenn Detention center while he waits for a bond hearing.
