Miller denied bail, will wait in jail
Adrian Miller is back in jail — and, this time, it looks like he'll stay there for a while.
The controversial Thompson Rivers University student-senator and governor-elect was denied bail yesterday (March 29) in Kamloops provincial court and had his bail revoked on all other outstanding charges.
Earlier the same day, according to court records, the 26-year-old had a new charge of fraud under $5,000 sworn against him.
The charge stems from an incident on March 11, in which Miller is alleged to have defrauded the Real Canadian Superstore.
Police allege Miller entered the store with a receipt, removed items similar to those on the receipt from a shelf and returned them for cash.
Miller is facing a long list of outstanding criminal allegations.
He is slated to stand trial on five breach charges this summer, with one trial in July and two in August.
In December, he has a two-day trial booked on charges he stole jewelry and electronics from his landlords and pawned them for cash.
He is due back in court on the most recent charge on Monday, April 2.
Miller was elected as a student representative to TRU's senate and board of governors following student elections in December.
He has attended one senate meeting, but missed his swearing-in ceremony for the board of governors in February while in jail.
TRU has since said officials will wait until Miller's legal matters are sorted out before deciding how his status on the board will proceed.
In January, TRU attempted to have Miller kicked out of school for non-payment of tuition fees. In an emergency hearing, a B.C. Supreme Court judge sided with the university — but Miller came up with the $539 he owed just in time to remain enroled.
Miller also has a lawsuit filed in B.C. Supreme Court claiming TRU has been "negligent" in its dealings with him as a student.
In recent months, as various warrants and charges have taken Miller in and out of police custody, TRU has at times upped its on-campus security.
There is no word what, if any, impact Miller's detention will have on campus security.
