The investigation, initiated by a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, led to the discovery of over 100 illicit images on Miller’s cell phone and computer. New York State Police had arrested Miller in May 2021 after executing a search at his Corning residence.

Under the terms of his plea, Miller is required to pay restitution of no less than $3,000 per victim. This case underscores ongoing efforts to combat child exploitation.
