Indiana GOP councilman charged with 3 counts of child molestation after allegedly assaulting two ten-year-old girls

Published

Republican Indianapolis city councilman Jeff Miller has been charged with three counts of child molesting, fondling or touching after two 10-year-old girls alleged he inappropriately touched and massaged them, Fox 59 reports.

The charges come after Channel 8 WISH-TV Friday reported Miller was under investigation for an Oct. 20 incident listed as “sex crime — child fondling.” Authorities reportedly executed a search warrant in Miller’s home the following day.

According to the affidavit, Miller submitted the two young girls to fondling between Sept. 1 and Oct. 20, including massaging one of the victim’s legs and patting her buttocks. During a search of Miller’s home, police looked for “a bin of massage stuff.”

“When Jeff massages her, he uses all of the various massage tools in the box of massage stuff she described earlier,” the affidavit reads.

Miller told place he was friends with the girls’ parents. They would reportedly play hide-and-seek and a game called “Ride the Wild Jeff-beast” while at his home, according to police.

As Indianapolis Business Journal reports, when police asked Miller whether the children enjoyed his massages, he replied, “It’s fun to know somebody enjoys something. … I’m a giver.”

“I’m a, m-my thing is, uh, there’s a reason I say I’m not a politician,” he continued. “I’m a public servant. I’ve always been…my, my memory verse, literally, is, ‘He came not to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom to many.’ It’s just service is a thing for me. But…yeah. So, so yeah. The answer to your question of did you enjoy it? Absolutely.”

Asked if he offers the massages for sexual enjoyment, Miller replied, “Lord, I hope not.”

Marion County Republican Central Committee Chairman Jim Merritt said he accepted Miller’s resignation, effective Monday.

It was played several times here in the aftermath of one of the deadliest mass shootings in the state’s history.

On Monday, the lyrics resonated once again as a duo sang its message of agony and remembrance just before 23 white doves were released in honor of the victims.
