LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A former police officer will be sentenced this fall after pleading guilty to violating sex abuse laws with students at a residential, educational program run by the Kentucky National Guard.
The U.S. attorney's office in Louisville says 45-year-old Stephen E. Miller of Grayson County pleaded guilty to abusive sexual contact with three female students and third-degree sodomy with a fourth at Bluegrass Challenge Academy in 2013. Miller is a former Leitchfield police officer.
Prosecutors say he later worked at Bluegrass Challenge Academy, located at Fort Knox, and had supervisory authority over the students.
Sentencing will be Nov. 2. Miller faces up to 11 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million.
Miller pleaded guilty July 30, and the plea was accepted in U.S. District Court last week.
