Mark Miller arrest -- press release from sheriff

 Attorney Christopher Mark Miller arrested following multiple Grand Jury Indictments
Sheriff Office Press Release
At approximately 3:30 pm today, Christopher Mark Miller was arrested at his home in Gilmer County, following Pickens County Grand Jury indictments issued earlier on this day. The indictments follow 15 months of investigative work by detectives with the Pickens Sheriff’s Office. Even though the investigation is ongoing, and the potential for additional victims and charges exists, enough evidence existed for today’s Grand Jury presentation.
   In addition to detectives from our agency, the Financial Investigations Unit with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Appalachian Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s office were a tremendous help in the review of all subpoenaed records and documents. Detectives have also forwarded the official documentation to the Georgia Bar Association for their review as the case is completed. 
   Since the publication of a recent Gilmer County arrest of Mr. Miller for Contempt of Court charges, the Pickens Sheriff’s Office has received information of the potential for additional victims in this case. Mr. Miller is listed on the Georgia Secretary of State’s website as the Registered Agent of 67 separate corporations (both active and dissolved) and detectives are attempting to make contact with as many individuals as they can to have them review their documents as well. 
Sheriff Donnie Craig stated “I am very proud of the hard work that our detectives have put into this case and the hard work of District Attorney Allison Sosebee and her staff as well.” He went on to say “I hope that we were able to prevent the possibility of additional victims through working quickly with the court system to bring closure to this case.”
