Mike Miller Misconduct Case Under Review By Commonwealth Prosecutor

  The special prosecutor tasked with reviewing the case involving Marshall County Judge Executive Mike Miller says he’ll present his findings to a grand jury in the next couple of weeks.

Miller allegedly falsified public records to allow the county’s dog warden to receive state unemployment benefits while Miller indicated the employee retired. 

5th Circuit Commonwealth Attorney Zac Greenwell says he’s received the Kentucky State Police report and will now decide whether the evidence is sufficient enough to turn over to the Marshall County Grand Jury.

“Unfortunately there was a lot for the officer to look into, I’ve got a pretty lengthy police report in my hand, a few hundred pages of police report, so it took them awhile to get through the investigation," said Greenwell. "But I think the public’s ready to get something done over there, one way or another.”

Miller’s charged with one felony count of misuse of confidential information and one misdemeanor count of official misconduct. Greenwell says the felony charge carries one to five years imprisonment while the misdemeanor carries up to 12 months in the county jail.
