Jeff Miller Requests Special Prosecutor In Child Molesting Case

Miller is charged with three counts of child molesting. The case has already been moved to Hendricks County after Marion County judge's recusal

INDIANAPOLIS -- Republican City-county councilor Jeff Miller wants a special prosecutor to oversee the child molesting case against him.

Miller’s attorneys filed the motion to appoint a special prosecutor Wednesday. The case has already been moved to Hendricks County after Judge Mark Stoner recused himself. Instead Judge Mark Smith will hear the case in Danville.

Miller, who represents the 16th district of Indianapolis, was charged earlier this month with three counts of child molesting. 

According to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case, the investigation began when a 10-year-old girl came forward claiming Miller had massaged her and made her uncomfortable on more than one occasion.

Despite the charges against him, and calls for him to step down, most of which have come from his own party, Miller has not yet resigned his seat on the council. He attended a community meeting Monday night for the Carson Heights Neighborhood Association.

Judge Smith has not ruled on the request to appoint a special prosecutor. An initial hearing on the case is set for December 4th in Hendricks County Superior Court.
