He also faces felony charges of first-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief. Bail is set at $510,000.

Deputy district attorney John F. Casolino wrote in a probable cause affidavit that the alleged assault occurred Oct. 23.

Hoyer denied abusing the girl, but the affidavit says semen on the 3-year-old’s underwear matched the DNA profile of Hoyer. He is scheduled to return to court Nov. 18.
