A judge in the Village of Newark and Town of Arcadia was arrested on Friday on charges of stalking his ex-girlfriend.
Michael Miller, 53, of Newark was arrested after a stay away order of protection had been issued. That court order was issued on April 29th.
Miller is accused of using neighbor’s homes, as well as his secretary’s house – who lived nearby – to watch the woman’s property.
According to the Times of Wayne County, the woman was afraid that the legal community would not prosecute or even seek charges against Miller because of his position as a judge.
Miller was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, and fourth-degree stalking. He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance.
Reporting in Wayne County indicates that Miller is suspended from the bench pending the outcome of this case.
He would be disbarred if convicted of the felony charge.
