Following Guilty Plea Miller Attempts To Make Prison Sentence Favorable

News

Attorney Mark Miller plead guilty Wednesday, July 19, to multiple counts of theft and financial fraud. The day after Miller received his sentence, he phoned his wife from the Pickens County Adult Detention Center. The call took a turn when Miller asked his wife for a specific favor in relation to his time being served,

It is a very political animal so I need you to make a very concerted effort to contact and make an appointment to go see David Ralston.

He then continued the conversation by giving her specific details,

What we want David to do is write a letter, to the Department of Corrections and the Parole Board, saying I’m interested in Mark Miller, as a professional colleague of mine, etc. if you would keep me informed of what’s going on with him. That will flag me in DOC jargon and I will get better treatment and better placement and better parole opportunities and everything else because it is so political. The speaker of the House of Representatives writing a letter will go a huge way.

FYN contacted David Ralston’s office and we are currently awaiting more information.

Officers at the jail are baffled by his attempt believing it is just another bad decision on his part.

The complicated case of a well-known Jasper attorney Mark Miller, that is accused of numerous charges of financial fraud and theft  has taken a turn with a extremely high bail set.  After a day of court running from 9 a.m. until after 7 p.m.  Senior Judge Richard Winegarden declared the high-profile attorney would be given bond on each case individually.  Miller would need to come up with more than $1.6 million in property and $235,000 in cash to get out of jail on bond. Miller had been in jail since June with no bond set prior to this hearing.

Miller’s Defense Counsel Scott Poole said there is no way his client could arrange that kind of cash bond. “It’s so high, it is basically the equivalent of no bond.”
