I originally posted about William Miller here. He was arrested back in February of 2012 for prostituting what was then being reported as a 14-year-old girl. The articles now say that the girl was 15 at the time. Either way that’s still child prostitution. And of course Miller used Backpage to turn the girl out.
This past week Miller entered into a plea deal which will see him be sentenced to 12 years behind bars of federal child trafficking charges. This was after prosecutors dropped child porn charges against Miller because he allegedly took pictures of the girl having sex with him that he posted on Backpage. However the deal almost didn’t go through because of this…
While he agreed to most of that, he denied knowing she was a minor or that she planned to have sex on Feb. 10, 2012, when he drove her to the Quality Inn in Oakland.
Then what the hell did he think she was going there for? Housekeeping?
Also as I’ve said before not only is blood thicker than water it’s dumber than it too. Not only did we have someone who knows Miller try to defend him in the comments but Miller’s brother is also a victim blamer…
After the hearing, Miller’s brother, Romir Miller, said that an unemployed man like his brother, presented with an offer to work as security for a prostitute, “is going to look at that as an opportunity to make some money.”
Um…no, no he’s not. I and many other people have been unemployed for long periods of time without resorting to enslaving others to make them money.
Some of Miller;s family also believe he was coerced into taking responsibility for parts of the crime that he didn’t commit. What part of the crime did he not commit, the trafficking, the underage sex, or the production of child porn. I’m all ears on this one.
Also 12 years is a joke of a sentence. He probably could have been sentenced to more time on the child porn charge alone. Nationally the sentenced for child sex trafficking need to be increased.
