Former NC church volunteer pleads guilty to porn charges
Thanks to YH:
Charlotte, NC - A former volunteer at a Charlotte church who pleaded guilty over a year ago to child pornography charges was sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison.
Russell Earl Miller was arrested in July 2004 at a water park in while helping chaperone a church youth group retreat. He's been in federal custody ever since.
The 49-year-old father of two was accused of trading sexually exploitative images of children on the Internet.
Miller agreed to a plea in September of last year in which he admitted to at least 300 pornographic images and that the material involved minors under the age of 12.
Miller was formerly youth volunteer at Charlotte's Myers Park Presbyterian Church and worked as a real estate appraiser.
