James Orza Miller Enters Alford Plea

Wise County resident James Orza Miller, age 51 of Coeburn entered an Alford Plea to five counts of Construction Fraud which means he is potentially facing up to one hundred years in prison. While an Alford Plea means that Miller is not admitting guilt, he does acknowledge there’s enough evidence to convict him of the crimes.
Last week Miller was convicted of violating the terms of his probation for prior crimes. In 2010 Miller was convicted of seven count of Felony Construction Fraud. In addition to a suspended sentence he had been placed on parole and ordered to pay restitution to his victims.
Commonwealth Attorney Chuck Slemp stated, “We will be asking the court to impose Mr. Miller’s previously suspended sentences and a significant term of incarceration for his new crimes at the upcoming sentencing hearing.”
Miller’s sentencing for current crimes is scheduled for July 10th, 2019.
