Hearing To Be Held Regarding Miller Trial
Friday May 12, 2017 7:30am
Centreville, MI

By: Mike Stiles

(CENTREVILLE) – A hearing is scheduled for today to determine if the trial of a former Centreville teacher can proceed.

St. Joseph County Circuit Court officials say that Judge Paul Stutesman will be hearing arguments today on a defense motion to dismiss the case against Terry Miller, claiming the delays have violated Miller's right to a speedy trial.

St. Joseph County Prosecutor John McDonough asked for an adjournment in the trial that was supposed to start in February, after learning that a sister of one of the employees in the Prosecutor's Office was a student of Miller's, and supported the defendant.

McDonough says because of this information, he removed himself from the case and asked the Michigan Attorney General's Office to appoint a special prosecutor, who is coming from the Van Buren County Prosecutor's Office.

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, many times in the classroom.

Police investigators say the allegations went back to 2012, when the girls were in middle school and Miller was their teacher.

He remains free on a $75,000 bond.
