A Hall County man is accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl several times since the beginning of last year, according to authorities.

Christopher Michael Iles, 46, was arrested Friday, April 26, and charged with aggravated sexual battery.

Attorney Alex McQueen did not return a request for comment Monday, April 29.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said the case started after a referral from the Division of Family and Children Services.

“Iles is charged with sexually assaulting a minor female on several occasions from January 2018 until his arrest on April 26, 2019,” Ware wrote in a news release.

The lieutenant did not disclose the date of the DFCS referral.

Ware said Iles and the girl were previously acquainted with one another.

Ware said more charges are anticipated, and the case is still under investigation.
