Man accused of assaulting minor charged with sexual battery

A man is in jail after authorities in Hall County said he sexually assaulted a minor on several occasions over a period of more than a year. 

Christopher Michael Iles, 46, is charged with aggravated sexual battery in connection with the alleged assaults, which happened between January 2018 and April 2019, Hall sheriff’s office spokesman Lt. Scott Ware said. 

The sheriff initiated a criminal investigation after a referral from the Division of Family and Children Services, Ware said. He said Iles and the victim know each other. 

Iles was arrested Friday and booked into the Hall County Jail, where his bond has not been set. 

The investigation is ongoing.
