Ronald Jay Miller, 38, pleaded guilty July 10 in Richmond County Superior Court. Judge Sheryl B. Jolly imposed a sentence of 10 years’ probation, with the condition Miller is to complete a drug-rehab program.

Miller had been in the Augusta Judicial Circuit’s drug court program but had absconded at the time of his arrest for the Nov. 11 burglary.

According to sheriff’s investigators, the Hephzibah man made his daughter stand watch while he stole copper wire from an Augusta home.

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip that Miller had burglarized a home in the 2300 block of Laurel Lane with his daughter between Nov. 11 and Nov. 25.

According to the police report, Miller told his daughter to keep an eye out for the police while he burglarized the home.

This scumbag already in the system breaking rules and the judge gives him probation. What in the world does Richmond county even have a court for. Just pat them on the head when you arrest them and make them promise to be good boys from now on. On the job training for his daughter to follow in daddies foot steps.
