Sentencing Hearing Set for Monday in the Case of Connie Miller

A sentencing hearing for former North Judson Clerk-Treasurer Connie Miller will be Monday, May 13 at 9 a.m. ET in St. Joseph Superior Court.

A sentence will be handed down by Special Judge Jerome Frese.

Miller pleaded guilty to three counts in a recommended plea agreement filed in Starke Circuit Court. Judge Frese has taken the agreement under advisement and will rule Monday morning.

The recommendation would sentence Miller to three years on each count to be served concurrently and each of those sentences would be suspended to be served on probation. As part of the recommended plea agreement, Miler would be required to pay court costs, probation fees and serve one year on home detention through Starke County Community Corrections. She would also have to pay restitution of $52,044.

Miller is pleading guilty to charges that allege she took over $74,000 in funds from the town of North Judson during a time in which she served as clerk-treasurer from Jan. 1, 2010 to Dec. 31, 2011.
