Indiana Republican councilman under investigation on charges of molesting a 10-year-old girl
Republican Indianapolis city councilman Jeff Miller is reportedly under investigation for charges of child molestation, according to sources within the city police department.
Channel 8 WISH-TV said that multiple sources within the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department confirmed that Miller is facing charges.
The Indianapolis Business Journal obtained a police incident report from Oct. 20 listing the offense as “sex crime — child fondling” which took place at Miller’s home address.
The suspect is described as “a 50-year-old white male who is 5’11” and 160 pounds — all of which matches Miller,” said the Journal.
IMPD officer Sgt. Eli McAllister wrote in the report, “I learned that a ten-year-old child disclosed she had been molested.”
McAllister spoke to the Journal and said that the incident is under investigation but declined to say more or to confirm whether Miller is the suspect identified in the report.
“Honestly. I can’t comment on any ongoing, open investigations,” he said.
