Jeff Miller Makes First Court Appearance, Set to Attend City-County Council Meeting

The Indianapolis City-County Councilor faces three counts of child molesting after two ten-year-old girls accused Miller of touching them inappropriately.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis City-County Councilman Jeff Miller will make his first court appearance Monday followed by his first council meeting tonight after being charged with child molesting

Miller is facing three felony counts after two 10-year-old girls say he touched them inappropriately.

Miller's pretrial hearing is set for March 16, 2018.

According to RTV6 reporter Katie Heinz, Miller did not comment on his way out of the courthouse:

He is expected to attend the city-county council meeting later this evening. Miller represents District 16, an area south of downtown that includes Fountain Square.

Marion County Republican Chairman Jim Merritt has asked Miller to step down from the council after his arrest and release on bond Nov. 17.  Miller says he will not resign.  He would only be forced off the council if he is convicted of a felony.
