Mark Miller pleads guilty


Jasper attorney Mark Miller pleaded guilty in Pickens Superior Court late Wednesday to multiple counts of theft and financial fraud against former clients, foregoing a trial which would have begun in August.

   The plea settlement negotiated back and forth all day Wednesday will see the well-known, outspoken attorney sentenced to 40 years, to serve 5 years. Miller, jailed since June of 2016 will be granted credit for that year. The remaining 35 years will be on probation.

   Miller will be required to make restitution of  $1.3 million to former clients who he pleaded guilty to taking funds from their accounts.
