Former member of U.S. Army charged with child rape in Bradley County

CLEVELAND, Tenn. (WDEF) — A twenty-year-old man, who was in the military, is accused of child rape in Bradley County.

Brent Austin Miolen is charged with two counts of child rape. The allegations were reported to the Cleveland Police Department on April 13. The victim was nine years old at the time.

According to Cleveland Police, Miolen was a member of the United States Army, stationed in Germany.

The Army’s Criminal Investigation Division was contacted by detectives and they worked together to bring Miolen to Texas to be held in custody pending results of a Grand Jury.

Once the indictment was handed down on August 16, Miolen was released into the custody of the El Paso Sheriff’s Office. After he waived his right to an extradition hearing, officials say plans were made for him to be transferred back to Bradley County.

Miolen will be in court on October 16th.
