Robert Miller Pleads Not Guilty To Possessing Child Pornography
A Casper man is accused of having inappropriate images of children on his computer.
Robert Miller has pleaded not guilty to one charge of sexual exploitation of children.
Prosecutors say in August 2014, an investigator with the Casper Police Department was examining a file sharing website and observed that an IP address (later determined to be from Casper), appeared to be sharing digital files of child pornography.
The address was traced to a wireless router at an apartment, but upon conducting a search, it was determined the apartment housed people with mental and physical disabilities and they were not capable of using computers.
Police found the router inside the building and after checking the system log, they identified a number of computers that had access...one of them being Miller's computer.
It turned out that Miller had access to the router inside the building, because he was one of the caretakers of the apartment tenants.
When interviewed, Miller confessed to what he did, stating he was curious.
A forensic examination later found evidence inside his computer.
Miller is free on $7,500 bond awaiting trial and could face up to 10 years in prison, if convicted.
