LANCASTER – A former Palmdale resident arrested last year in North Carolina pleaded not guilty Friday to sex-related charges involving two young family members.
David Wayne Hoyle, 48, formerly of Palmdale, allegedly sexually abused the two Palmdale girls, ages 7 and 8, and allegedly beat a 7-year-old boy and exposed him to lewd conduct, according to Deputy District Attorney Jon Hatami.
Hoyle is charged with 11 felony counts related to crimes that allegedly took place between September 2011 and July 2014. He was arrested in May 2015 and extradited from North Carolina last August.
Hoyle is charged with four felony counts of oral copulation or sexual penetration with a child 10 years old or younger; one felony count of sexual intercourse or sodomy with a child 10 years old or younger; and two felony counts each of committing lewd acts upon a child, making criminal threats and corporal injury to a child.
Hoyle is also charged with two misdemeanor counts of lewd practices in the presence of a minor.
At the time of his arrest, Hoyle was on probation for a 2013 misdemeanor domestic violence conviction, according to prosecutors.
He is due back in a Lancaster courtroom Feb. 8 for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to require him to stand trial.
