Indiana City Councilman Jeff Miller Arrested On Child Molestation Charge

Community 'angry' after child molesting charges filed against councilman Indiana City Councilman Jeff Miller Arrested On Child Molestation Charge

After a almost monthlong investigation of the allegations, a probable cause warrant was issued Thursday for Jeff Miller, a Republican in office since 2012, on three counts of child molesting.

According to the affidavit, Miller submitted the two young girls to fondling between September 1 and October 20, including massaging one of the victim's legs and patting her buttocks.

The 10-year-old told investigators that she was watching the news with her parents about "the famous guy who directs Broadway things" and how he "had been doing things like this" and she felt guilty because she hadn't told her parents about it. The charges against Miller were leveled after authorities conducted a search of his home last month.

Miller subsequently resigned from his seat Friday afternoon.

Miller confirmed the girl's accounts that massages were sometimes given and received by people, including the girls, while they were "all in the room together".

The young girl told investigators that she would spend time at Miller's house on occasion and he would use some of the massagers from his "basket of massagers" to massage the kids.

Miller himself allegedly told investigators he had not done anything wrong but did not comment on whether the girls were lying, according to WRTV.

The girls had known Miller for about five years and often visited his Fletcher Place home because they were friends with Miller's son.

As Indianapolis Business Journal reports, when police asked Miller whether the children enjoyed his massages, he replied, "It's fun to know somebody enjoys something".

"I'm a, m-my thing is, uh, there's a reason I say I'm not a politician", he continued. I'm not gonna... that's, that's how she felt. Not fine with the situation. Period. I mean...yeah, nothing more to say other than that. Desperately sorry and, um, that's, that's her right. And that can't be taken away from her. "That's how she feels".

Jennifer M. Lukemeyer is representing Miller in the case filed in Marion Superior Court, Criminal Division 6.
