Miller behind bars at least to end of May
Adrian Miller will have to stay behind bars until at least the end of the month.
The 26-year-old Thompson Rivers University student-senator was arrested on May 3 on allegations he breached his house-arrest conditions, which had been imposed less than three weeks earlier.
Miller was elected to TRU’s senate and board of governors in campus-wide elections held in December.
On April 13, Miller was handed a 125-day house-arrest sentence after pleading guilty to all of his outstanding charges — a string of counts including theft, possession of stolen property, fraud, mischief and breach.
Miller had been on probation stemming from a mischief conviction last spring in Prince George.
In that instance, he trashed an apartment he was living in while in the process of being evicted.
In Kamloops, he breached the conditions of that probation order a number of times.
He also racked up new substantive charges, first in February when he stole jewelry and electronics from his landlords before pawning much of the loot for cash.
Miller tried to pin the thefts on a fictitious burglar and was charged with mischief for reporting a false crime.
In March, Miller was charged with fraud after returning for cash items he hadn’t purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore in Sahali.
Miller had been in custody for a month before pleading guilty and receiving his house-arrest sentence.
In addition to his elected positions at TRU, Miller unsuccessfully sought a seat on the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s board of education last fall.
He also has an ongoing lawsuit against TRU, claiming the school has been negligent in its dealings with him as a student.
He is due back in court on May 29 for a hearing to determine whether he breached his house arrest.
It’s possible he could be made to serve out the entirity of his sentence behind bars — which would see him stay in jail until mid-August.
