Child sex charges against former Madison Twp. fire chief sent to grand jury

Another female, now in her early 40s, told a relative in a text message that Miller raped her when she was 13. Lambert said Miller indicated he waited until the girl was 13 years old so she “understood” what was happening. The rapes allegedly occurred in the Miller residence, according to court documents.

Miller’s attorney, Chris Pagan, asked Lambert if the BCSO served any search warrants. She said Miller’s cell phone and computer were confiscated and his home was searched. She said the investigation is ongoing.

Miller’s bond remained at $380,000, and he was ordered to have no contact with any of the alleged victims.

Holtman’s Donuts said a group there for a coffee and conversation event with Ohio Rep. Jennifer Gross were not following mask protocols.
