Keith Miller Of Lyndonville, Vermont Sentenced To 21 Months For Possession Of Child Pornography

The Office of the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont stated that Keith Miller, 44, of Lyndonville, Vermont was sentenced on May 5, 2014 for possession of child pornography.  Judge William K. Sessions III sentenced Miller to 21 months in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.  Miller’s supervised release conditions will include special sex offender conditions, including a requirement that he register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.  Judge Sessions ordered Miller to surrender to serve his sentence on June 10, 2014.

According to court documents, as part of an on-line investigation into users’ acquisition of child pornography by computer, federal agents determined that a computer at Miller’s residence had downloaded child pornography.  Agents executed a federal search warrant at Miller’s residence on February 19, 2013.  Miller admitted that he had used his computer to download child pornography.  Subsequent forensic analysis of the computers seized from Miller determined that Miller had downloaded a substantial number of images of child pornography. 

This matter was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Vermont State Police, with the assistance of the Lyndonville Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin J. Doyle.  Miller is represented by David L. McColgin of the Federal Defender’s Office.
