Mark Miller pleads guilty

Miller

Jasper attorney Mark Miller pleaded guilty in Pickens Superior Court late Wednesday to multiple counts of theft and financial fraud against former clients, foregoing a trial which would have begun in August.

   The plea settlement negotiated back and forth all day Wednesday will see the well-known, outspoken attorney sentenced to 40 years, to serve 5 years. Miller, jailed since June of 2016 will be granted credit for that year. The remaining 35 years will be on probation.

   Miller will be required to make restitution of  $1.3 million to former clients who he pleaded guilty to taking funds from their accounts.

            See full details, Miller’s final statement to the judge and comments in next week’s Progress.

Still today you think there's a God? Miller's a criminal, plain and simple. We're a nation of laws. He broke many of them and was sentenced appropriately. Don't bible-belt us for stating our opinion or judging the loser. Let go of your antiquated religious beliefs and get on board with reality.

Hey, nothing new here, it's called 'selective enforcement' and has been going on for a long time.
