A Mexico man has been sentenced to prison time for sex crimes against a child.
49 year old Thomas Alan Miller was sentenced to 43 years in prison after being found guilty on several sex crime charges.
Assistant Prosecuting attorney Ashley Turner said following the verdict that Miller took no responsibility for repeated abuse to the victim who Prosecuting Attorney Jacob Shellabarger commended for her bravery.
Shellabarger eluded to the fact that the victim was further traumatized as the trial progressed, saying “Our community must make sure the victim blaming mentality is put to rest, as this victim has faced vicious treatment from others in the community only for telling the truth about her abuser.”
A jury deliberated five hours before finding Miller guilty of statutory sodomy, child molestation, child abuse & endangering the welfare of a child.
