Motion to Dismiss Miller Trial Denied
Saturday May 13, 2017 8:08am
Centreville, MI

(CENTREVILLE) – The trial of former Centreville Schools teacher Terry Miller can proceed.

That was the ruling handed down Friday by St. Joseph County Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman. He denied a defense motion to dismiss the criminal sexual conduct charges against Miller. The argument was that Miller's right to a speedy trial was violated due to several delays over the last couple of years.

With that decision, Stutesman says Miller's trial will begin on July 25.

Miller 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.

St. Joseph County Prosecutor John McDonough asked for an adjournment in the trial back in February, after learning that a sister of one of the employees in his office was a former 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.
