KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A woman who knew of alleged sexual abuse happening to a 6-year-old girl told her to "keep quiet about it," according to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews.

That woman, 38-year-old Michele Bass Miller, has been arrested and charged with two counts of unlawful neglect of a child.

Miller's arrest is based on the allegation that two children had told her of the alleged abuse.

A day earlier, 65-year-old Kenneth Parker was arrested and charged with 1st degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 11.

Matthews says a recent class presentation about "good touches" and "bad touches" led Parker's arrest.

According to investigators, the alleged victim told a teacher about the alleged assaults after the presentation.

That teacher immediately passed the information along to authorities, who issued an arrest warrant for Parker.

Parker has previously been arrested for disorderly conduct, third degree criminal sexual conduct, night hunting for deer, public drunkenness, criminal domestic violence, open container, assault and battery with intent to kill and simple assault.
