Court Hearing Set for April 8 for Connie Miller


A court hearing has been set for April 8 for Connie Miller in a St. Joseph County Court.

Connie Miller is accused of taking $74,408.67 from the town of North Judson during the time in which she served as the town’s Clerk-Treasurer from Jan. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2011.

Ten counts have been filed against Miller: nine counts of Theft and one count of Official Misconduct, which are Class D Felonies. The charges, which were filed Aug. 22, allege that Miller took unauthorized control over cemetery lot sales, utility receipts, and other deposits and payments from the town.

Her case has been moved out of the county and Todd Wallsmith is her counsel in this case. A special prosecutor has been named due to the fact that Starke County Prosecutor Nicholas Bourff served as North Judson’s attorney during the time Miller was clerk-treasurer. Michael Krebes will oversee the case for the state.
