A Miamisburg man previously indicted on charges accusing him of sexually abusing three girls is now accused of additional crimes involving a fourth victim, the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Today, a grand jury indicted him on four additional counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor after it was learned Pate was accused of sexually abusing the fourth victim in 2004.

“Investigators believe that this defendant may have committed sex offenses on additional victims and are asking that anyone who may have information contact Detective Michael Aiken of the Miamisburg Police Department at 937‐847‐6621,” the prosecutor’s office said.

Additionally, specifications on the original indictment have been added, where if convicted as charged, Pate would spend the rest of his life in prison.

Pate is in custody and is scheduled for trial July 29.
