Trial Date Moved For Lucedale Sheriff Facing Felony Charges

Trial has been rescheduled for George County Sheriff George Miller Senior, who's accused of perjury and threatening a federal witness.

The trial is now set for April 1st. It had been scheduled to begin February 4th.

U.S. District Judge Walter J. Gex granted a continuance to give Miller's new attorney Sam Wilkins time to prepare for trial.

Miller was indicted by a federal grand jury in November on charges he threatened bank director Jack Ware. Ware was a witness in First National Bank of Lucedale's $28 million lawsuit against former bank officials and Miller's son, George Miller Jr.

The sheriff was arrested as the trial was ending in federal court in Biloxi.

A federal jury awarded no monetary damages to the bank or to George Miller Junior after the three-week trial.
