Veteran Police Officer Resigns Amid Child Porn Charges

A veteran police officer, with 22 years of service with the Columbus Ohio Police Department resigned in disgrace after thousands of images of child pornography were discovered on his laptop. Samuel Miller was turned in by his own wife. It was not the first time she discovered he had pictures of nude children on his computer.

When Miller’s wife discovered pictures of more than two dozen nude underage females on her husband’s computer two years ago, he attributed the pornography to their teenage son. As reported by 10-TV, in July 2013, Officer Miller’s wife clicked on a thumbnail which she believed were family vacation photos. Instead, the pictures were of several dozen young females in “various stages of undress.” Suspicion that something more was going on may have led her to discover that Sam Miller had a hidden camera and a VHS tape that had recorded sex acts between underage family members. Also discovered was a “thumb drive” and “hard drives” which contained “multiple images and videos” of young female girls.

After finding the additional proof that her husband was engaging in child pornography, Miller’s wife reported the information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Miller was presented with the evidence and agreed to plead guilty to receiving child pornography.

Miller faces up to 20 years in prison. His wife has thus far refused to offer any comment to the media.
