Man convicted of sex crimes against children to be sentenced today

August 20, 2013

LUDINGTON — Robert James Miller, 41, of Oscoda, will be sentenced in 51st Circuit Court this afternoon for criminal sexual conduct against two children. In June Miller pleaded guilty to a count of first degree CSC with a 12-year-old boy and second degree CSC with an 8-year-old boy. Both children were residing in Riverton Township at the time of the offense; the offenses took place in March of this year.

Judge Richard Cooper is likely to sentence Miller to 25 to 50 years in prison under the plea agreement. During a hearing in June, Miller told the court that he placed the 12 -year-old boy’s genitalia in his mouth and that he rubbed his own genitalia on the younger boy’s bare bottom for sexual gratification.

Miller has two previous CSC convictions from 1998 in Iosco County. Without the agreement Miller would have served a maximum life sentence without parole. Under the terms of the agreement he will have mandatory lifetime monitoring.
