RENFREW – Father Daniel M. Miller, 67, a priest of the Diocese of Pembroke, is facing further charges for sexual assault offences dating back to the 1960's and 1970's.

On April 20, the Ontario Provincial Police charged Father Miller with six additional charges in relation to three additional victims. He had been originally arrested and charged back on Feb. 20, 2012 for alleged offences that occurred against then pre-teenage boys and an adult male between 1970 and 1980.

He now faces a total of 12 charges in relation to six victims.

Rev. Miller has been charged with six counts of gross indecency and six counts of indecent assault.

According to the OPP, the three additional victims are from Arnprior, Deep River and Eganville and the alleged incidents occurred between 1969 and 1978.

Rev. Miller has been released from custody on a promise to appear and an officer-in-charge undertaking. He is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Renfrew on May 9, 2012.

A news release issued on behalf of the Diocese of Pembroke shortly after Rev. Miller's arrest in February, stated that he had not been participating in public ministry for over a decade.

Rev. Miller has been living in Pembroke.

He was ordained in Renfrew in 1969 and served briefly in Eganville, with other positions in Arnprior, Deep River and Petawawa, prior to 1999.

The investigation is continuing under the direction of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch. Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact the Renfrew County OPP Crime Unit at 613-432-3211 or 1-888-310-1122
