QUINCY, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police have charged an employee at Vision Quest, a rehabilitation camp for court-adjudicated juveniles, with sexually assaulting three girls at the Rocky Mountain Road camp, court records said Tuesday.

The incidents occurred between June 2001 and October 2001, according to the affidavit of probable cause on file in District Justice Larry Pentz's office.

Charged was Kedrick Jerard Miles of 13101 Welty Road, Waynesboro, Pa.

He was summoned by certified mail to appear in Central Court at the Franklin County Courthouse in Chambersburg at 9 a.m. Oct. 29 for a hearing, court records said.

Miles is charged with institutional sexual assault, a felony, and indecent assault, a misdemeanor, court records said.

It is unknown if Miles is still employed at Vision Quest or what his position is. Vision Quest officials declined comment Tuesday.


Police interviewed three girls at the camp following a complaint filed by the state Department of Public Welfare on suspected child abuse, court records said.

Two of the victims allegedd Miles touched them inappropriately on more than one occasion and made sexual comments to them. He told one that if she reported him she would have to serve an extra 30 days, court records said.

Miles touched the third victim inappropriately, court records said.

Trooper Eric Guyer is investigating the case.
