Mormon missionary arraigned in Vegas on sex charges

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A 21-year-old Mormon missionary was arraigned Wednesday in Justice Court on charges of fondling two young girls in a church classroom.

John Misseldine remained free on his own recognizance after the hearing, but was ordered back for a Dec. 2 preliminary hearing.

Misseldine, of Little Rock, Ark., has been charged with one count of sexual assault with a minor and two counts of lewdness. Authorities have accused Misseldine of improperly touching two girls, ages 4 and 7.

The sexual assault charge carries a possible sentence of life in prison.

Misseldine was freed in May after church officials promised a judge he would be supervised closely in an administrative church position and would not be allowed to deal with the public.

He was arrested May 3 after the girls reported he fondled them when they were left with him during services at a Las Vegas area church.
