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.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
