Woman: Iowa man tried to buy girl for $50,000

ALLISON, Iowa (AP) — A woman has testified in court that a northern Iowa man accused of sexually abusing her daughter tried to buy the girl for $50,000.

The woman said Tuesday during the second day of Clarence Miller’s trial in Butler County District Court that he made the offer through his own daughter because the woman doesn’t speak English.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1aJ7viT ) the woman testified that she said no to the 80-year-old man’s offer. She also said she didn’t tell anyone about the conversation.

Miller, of Thompson, faces two counts of second-degree sexual abuse for the alleged assault of two girls between January 2010 and August 2012. The girls, both 8 years old, have testified during the trial.

Miller’s attorney says his client denies any sexual abuse occurred.
