Richard Siler - Repeat Sex Offender - Babysitter molester

Police arrested Richard Siler, a registered sex offender, for allegedly sexually abusing three children left in his care.

Syracuse police told the Deseret News that say a 14-year old girl came forward this week claiming she had been sexually abused by Siler in 2003 and 2004. The girl's mother also claims she was fondled by Siler several times.

Police said they have identified three children and an adult woman who were sexually abused.

Police said Siler and his wife baby-sat children of friends.

Siler was booked into Davis County Jail on investigation of 12 counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child and three counts of sex abuse.

He was placed on the sex offender registry for attempted sex abuse of a child in 1999. Syracuse police Lt. Tracy Jensen told the Deseret News that Siler was no longer on probation or parole, but he remained on the registry.
