Bullitt County Man Indicted For Possession And Distribution Of Child Pornography
Attorney General Jack Conway and his Department of Criminal Investigations today announced the indictment of William John Miller, 26, of Hillview in Bullitt County, on five counts of possession and distribution of child pornography, all class D felony charges. A Bullitt County grand jury returned the indictment on March 27, 2009.
The indictment alleges that from January of 2008 and continuing through and including March 5, 2009, Miller committed the offense of Possession of Matter Portraying Sexual Performance by a Minor for receiving numerous images and videos containing children engaged in various forms of sexually explicit conduct. The indictment also alleges that Miller, by means of a computer, intended to distribute the images.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Office of the Attorney General’s Cybercrimes Unit, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC), with assistance from the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department and Kentucky State Police.
Miller was taken into custody on March 30 by a DCI investigator and the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department. He was lodged in the Bullitt County Jail. Miller entered a not guilty plea at his arraignment yesterday. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for July 8 with a trial date of July 30, 2009.
An indictment is an accusation only. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
