Case Conclusion Date:June 13, 2013
Practice Area:Federal Crime
Outcome:Not Guilty Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Cocaine and Not Guilty Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Marijuana
Description:DEA Case, a reverse buy, where a government paid informant testified as to the alleged 15 kilo cocaine deal claimed to have been brokered by Miller. Miller was on tape negotiating for marijuana with an undercover officer who was introduced to Miller by the paid informant, but in the first trial, the government elected to proceed solely with a cocaine conspiracy case against four men. The recent acquittal was a retrial of the 2012 mistrial (hung jury). In the second trial, the government retooled to add a marijuana conspiracy count and dropped the weakest case from the prosecution. Upon the retrial, Miller was exonerated of all charges by the jury, who chose to acquit both co-defendant's of all charges as well.
