Granby man sentenced to prison in sex assault case
June 16, 2010
Edward R. Miller, 28, of Granby, was sentenced by 14th Judicial District Chief Judge Michael A. O’Hara III to four years in the Department of Corrections on Friday, June 11, after being found guilty of attempted sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and violation of bail bond conditions.
He originally faced charges in two other cases, but the charges were dropped by the 14th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. One charge was sexual assault stemming from an alleged March 1, 2009, incident. The other charges included criminal extortion, another count of violation of bail bonds and 3rd degree assault.
The attempted sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust was reduced from an initial charge of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust.
The sentence, one year of which was for the violation of bail bond conditions, includes a total of three years of mandatory parole. Miller must register as a sex offender, keep authorities apprised of his address and submit a DNA sample.
He was also ordered to pay a total of $3,430 in fines and costs for the two convictions.
The charge of attempted sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust stemmed from multiple incidents involving a teenage victim that the complaint against Miller says occurred between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2009.
The arrest warrants in both sexual assault cases were sealed at the request of the DA’s office.
