Sullivan Man Placed on Probation

A Sullivan man had been placed on probation after entering a plea relating to felony counts of filing false Missouri income tax return and two felony counts of theft. A 14-month investigation between the Missouri Department of Revenue’s Criminal Tax Investigation Bureau and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department found that Richard Miller had obtained more than $230,000 form deceit. The victim was duped into supplying operating capital from a nonexistent business. Miller was indicted by the Franklin County Grand Jury for theft and filing false individual income tax returns for the years of 2007, 2008, and 2009. Miller entered an Alford plea, which is not an admission of guilt, but that there is enough evidence for conviction. A seven year sentence was suspended and Miller was placed on five years probation. One of the conditions of the probation is that Miller pay restitution. A hearing is scheduled for December 18, 2012.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
