The following month, a 68-year-old woman reported that Miller had sexually assaulted her as well. A 56-year-old woman came forward in June 2021 to report that she was sexually assaulted by the suspect.
Miller was arrested at about 10:30 AM on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, and charged with sexual elder abuse and sexual battery. He was booked into Orange County Jail on $100,000 bail.
