Jeff Miller Pleads Guilty, Resigns from City-County Council

Miller accepted a plea deal connected to allegations that he inappropriately touched children and pleaded guilty to four counts of battery.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Jeff Miller has resigned from the Indianapolis City-County Council after he pleaded guilty in connection with allegations that he inappropriately touched children.

Miller had been charged with three counts of child molesting. Those counts were dropped, and he pleaded guilty to four new felony counts of battery on an individual under age 14. 

He was sentenced to four years of probation and will not serve jail time. The convictions could be reduced to misdemeanors once Miller completes probation.

Miller represented District 16, the near southeast, south and southwest sides of Indianapolis.

An investigation into Miller's behavior began last year when a 10-year-old girl told police that when she would visit Miller's home, he would use body massagers from his "basket of massagers" on her and other children who visited the house.

The Marion Co. Republican Party will hold a caucus within the next 30 days to elect a replacement to serve out the remainder of Miller's term.
