Miller was in Perry County District Court in February, where he pled not guilty to one count of theft by deception over $500. His plea sent the case to the Grand Jury.
Miller, who played for Kentucky from 1986-1990, was accused of stealing money from Perry County Chiropractor Dale Williams by offering him tickets to UK games that Miller did not have. According to Williams, the ticket scam wasn’t the first time Miller had abused his trust for monetary gain.
In one scheme, Miller allegedly asked Williams to sponsor a drug abuse program that didn’t exist. Williams had been providing Miller’s false program with monetary sponsorship for five years when Miller approached him again, asking if he would like to buy season tickets to University of Kentucky men’s basketball games for the 2008-2009 seasons.
Williams paid Miller $1,200 for the tickets, but never received them.
He found out about the scam after hearing a similar story out of Lexington, in which Miller allegedly attempted to sell someone else tickets that he did not have.
Williams initially tried to solve the dispute without pressing charges against Miller, but said later he only wanted Miller to be unable to try this scam on anyone else.
Miller is facing similar charges in Floyd County where he allegedly scammed a woman out of $1,800 for season tickets he never had. He is also facing these charges in several other counties.
