A Republican Indianapolis city councilman resigned Friday following sexual misconduct allegations from underage girls.
Jeffrey Miller, 50, a Republican city councilman, resigned from his position after being accused of molesting two young girls at his home, NY Daily News reported.
Miller faces three felony counts of child molestation, according to court records in which he is quoted as acknowledging there might be truth to the allegations. Miller was arrested Friday and faces between two and 12 years in prison if the allegations of sexual molestation are true, the IndyStar reported.
One of the alleged victims, a 10-year-old girl, told her father about the alleged incident involving Miller following the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations. The young girl told investigators that Miller touched her buttocks, under her clothes, and “where the legs meet the groin,” according to court documents. The other girl told investigators that Miller touched her buttocks while he gave her a piggy-back ride.
“I defer to [the children]. If I’ve done something they’re uncomfortable with … perception is reality,” Miller told investigators, denying any alleged sexual misconduct despite admitting to touching them and giving massages.
