The assaults happened a few times over the past two years, a Pinellas County sheriff's news release stated.
 
According to the release, when interviewed by deputies Saturday, Millard said he had sexually abused the child twice. 

The couple were arrested Saturday and taken to the Pinellas County Jail.
