Utah jail officer pleads no contest to sex with inmates

July 25, 2019

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A correctional officer at a Utah jail has been convicted of engaging in sexual contact with inmates.

The Standard-Examiner reports 41-year-old Jeremy Clark Miller pleaded no contest Tuesday to a felony charge of custodial sexual relations.

Miller was a corporal in the corrections division of the Weber County Sheriff’s Office. He supervised female inmates at the county’s Kiesel Correctional Facility from August to November 2018.

According to court documents, two inmates told investigators that they had sex with Miller. He was arrested in January.

Prosecutors dropped four more counts in exchange for his plea. Prosecutors are not seeking a prison sentence.

The plea agreement allows for Miller’s felony conviction to be reduced to a misdemeanor if he completes counseling.

Miller is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
