(CENTREVILLE) – The trial of a former Centreville Public Schools teacher will be postponed again while a new prosecutor is assigned to the case.
St. Joseph County Circuit Court officials say following a hearing Monday, County Prosecutor John McDonough asked to be removed as the prosecutor in the case against Terry Miller and that the Michigan Attorney General's Office assign another prosecutor.
McDonough told the court that he found out a witness in the case was related to a member of his office staff. He notified the defense attorney, the Circuit Court and then the State Attorney General's Office who said there was a conflict.
The trial for the 47 year old Miller was set to start on February 15, but now Court officials say it could take several weeks to get a new prosecutor assigned to the case and to have that person get familiar with the information before a trial can begin.
Miller faces multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct. He was arrested in August 2015 and accused of over 100 counts of criminal sexual conduct after two female high school students came forward, claiming Miller touched and kissed them.
Police investigators say the allegations went back to 2012, when the girls were in middle school and Miller was their teacher.
