ROCHESTER, N.Y. — U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Jennifer Miller, 28, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor was sentenced to 70 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany H. Lee, who handled the case, stated that in April 2013, Miller and another co-conspirator transported a minor to New Jersey and Pennsylvania in order for the minor to engage in commercial sex acts. The defendant used Backpage.com to post ads for the minor. Miller also transported the minor to Pennsylvania another time knowing that the minor would be engaging in commercial sex acts.

Miller was arrested in April 2014 along with Jodia Campbell and Laree Greggs. Charges are pending against defendants Campbell and Greggs. The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Jodia Campbell and Laree Greggs have been convicted and are awaiting sentencing.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Child Exploitation Task Force, which includes the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Chief Michael Ciminelli, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, under the direction of Chief Patrick O’Flynn, and Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Adam S. Cohen.
