Waynesboro woman faces assault charges

YORK—A Waynesboro woman is facing charges of corruption of minors, indecent exposure and indecent assault after allegations of sexual abuse made by a 16-year-old boy.

Emily V. Miller, 30, of Waynesboro, was arrested by Northern York County Regional Police last month.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, NYCRP were notified in August of the allegations by the boy.

A forensic interview was conducted at the Over the Rainbow Children’s Advocacy Center in Chambersburg, and the boy said the alleged sexual abuse by Miller began when he was 11 years old and continued until he was about 13.

The boy said Miller would begin the abuse by massaging him prior to touching his genitals and encouraging him to touch her genitals.

According to the document, the boy said he swam for the Waynesboro Area YMCA and all of the incidents—approximately three in total—occurred at a York hotel during weekend league and district swim meets.

At the time, Miller was employed by the Waynesboro Area YMCA in the aquatics department.

“We were saddened to learn of a criminal complaint against Emily Miller, a former employee of the Waynesboro Area YMCA, alleging abuse of a minor. Upon learning of this criminal complaint, the Y was fully supportive and compliant with the recommendations of local authorities,” said Amanda Gietka, executive director. “At the Waynesboro Area YMCA, the safety and well-being of all children in our community is a top priority. We conduct thorough screenings and regular trainings for all Y employees. While these alleged incidents did not occur at the Y, we remain focused and diligent on the safety of our members.”

Miller is free on $75,000 bail while she awaits further court action.
