Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- A 32 year old Duluth man has been charged with sexually assaulting a young girl.

According to the criminal complaint, Robert Thomas Milbridge–Scott engaged in sexual contact with a girl under the age of 13, which included penetration.

The complaint alleges he then prayed with the child, after the assault, for something like that to never happen again.

Milbridge–Scott and his wife received media attention back in 2008, when the couple adopted eight children from Utah, and the community helped revamp their home for their new family.

He could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted. His next hearing is scheduled for November 30th.
