IRVINE, CA (February 19, 2012): Early this morning, Irvine Police detectives arrested Nicole Ethel McMillen (4-14-1970) a 41-year-old Irvine resident for felony lewd conduct with a minor. On Saturday afternoon, the parents of the 14-year-old male victim contacted police and alerted them to the crimes.
Officers receiving the report immediately contacted detectives and began the investigation. Detectives worked throughout the evening developing evidence to support the arrest of McMillen which occurred just after 1:00 a.m. this morning.
McMillen’s contact with the victim was at her residence in Irvine. Over the past six weeks detectives believe she has had sexual contact or other inappropriate physical contact with the victim on a number of occasions. This investigation is on-going and therefore specific details regarding this crime will not be made available until the case is presented to the District Attorney’s office.
Although McMillen’s employment is not related to this victim or a factor in this case, the Irvine Police Department has been in communication with the Tustin Unified School District where she is employed as a part-time aide. Both agencies are working in cooperation and have taken immediate steps to ensure McMillen has no contact with students.
Detectives fear there may be additional victims. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Detective Erika Hutchcraft at 949-724-7124 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. McMillen was booked into the Orange County Jail on $50,000 bail.
