A Montana man originally charged with more than 60 felony child sex crimes, including rape and possession of child pornography, was sentenced on only two charges and given a one-year sentence.
William Edward Miller 51, of Great Falls, agreed to the terms of the agreement on Monday and was sentenced before Cascade County District Judge Elizabeth Best.
Under the deal, Miller pleaded guilty to¬†a single count of sexual abuse of children, based on a photo of a 17-year-old girl that was found on his possession.
He was sentenced to one-year in prison. However, the sentence was deferred as long as he completed unsupervised probation.
Attention was first called to Miller after a 14-year-old girl came forward in February 2019 to say he had raped her, according to police. She also claimed that Miller had allowed an 11-year-old boy to rape her as well, and as he watched, the Tribune reported.
Miller, after he was arrested, was alleged to have made several calls from jail to people asking that they destroy his cell phone,¬†KFBB¬†reported.
The girl, now 19, has been married to Miller for three months and claimed she had taken the image and never intended for anyone else to have seen it.
