Groton man gets prison time for molesting teen

A 44-year-old Groton man was sentenced to a year in prison followed by strict probation for molesting a 17-year-old girl he knew in 2011.

Darren A. Miles, who had pleaded guilty in New London Superior Court to third-degree sexual assault, will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison. He has been held in lieu of $150,000 since he was arrested in October.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Groton town police began investigating after somebody who knew the victim reported the incident. The victim told police she was afraid to tell anyone. Confronted by police, Miles eventually admitted he had groped the girl.
