Coach Mike Miller

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jul 12, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Former Los Angeles City College (LACC) Coach and current CBA Commissioner, Michael Miller, exonerated on all charges in jury trial, the California Basketball Association (CBA) announced today. Miller, was unanimously found not guilty in a jury trial in Department 54 of the Los Angeles Superior Court at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in down town Los Angeles. Coach Miller was charged with 13 misdemeanor counts by the Los Angeles City Attorney in case number 4CA00067 on November 17, 2014.

Because of Coach Miller's past success as a college basketball coach the case received major media attention and Coach Miller was the subject of an article written for the Los Angeles Times on October 28, 2014 by Olga Grigoryants and Daina Beth Solomon.

The Article goes to great lengths to detail the accusations made against Coach Miller, but according to attorney JaQay Carlyle there are no details, updates nor subsequent articles from the Los Angeles Times on the outcome of the matter once it went to court.

After a three week jury trial, commencing on June 8, 2015 and ending on June 30, 2015, a jury unanimously found Coach Miller not guilty of (i) Penal Code Section 243.4(E)(1) (i.e., the sexual battery claim against Miller) and (ii) four counts of Penal Code Section 242 (i.e., the battery claims against Miller). Moreover, the court dismissed all eight counts of Penal Code §647(J)(3)(A) (i.e., the claims that Miller used a concealed camera to view a person's body in a private room) in the furtherance of justice.

The Los Angeles Times article, read in a vacuum and without further context of Coach Miller's exoneration, is tremendously damaging and embarrassing and is ultimately misleading to the public about the truth of this matter stated attorney JaQay Carlyle. Providing the not guilty verdict and dismissal of claims below, updates the facts and is important in the interest of justice.

When asked for a statement Coach Miller replied: "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account." (Matthew 5:11.)
