GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A suspect in Montana who was initially charged with more than 60 counts of child sex abuse has received a deferred one-year sentence after agreeing to a plea deal, according to reports.
William Edward Miller Jr., 51, of Great Falls, was arrested in February 2019 after a 14-year-old high school student accused him of raping her at her home a year prior. Moreover, the victim alleged that Miller allowed an 11-year-old boy to rape her while he watched in a separate encounter, according to the Great Falls Tribune.
Later that August, state prosecutors filed 64 counts of sexual abuse of children against Miller after investigators reportedly found images of child pornography and bestiality on his phone and laptop, the Great Falls Tribune reported. Police served a search warrant at his home after Miller allegedly began calling people from jail asking them to destroy his phone, KFBB reported.
