OGDEN — A Weber County sheriff's corrections officer in charge of female inmates is now in jail himself after investigators say he had sexual relations with at least two women in the jail.
Cpl. Jeremy Clark Miller, 41, was booked into the Box Elder County Jail on Thursday for investigation of 11 counts of custodial sexual relations.
Friday afternoon, Miller was formally charged in 2nd District Court with five counts of custodial sexual relations, a third-degree felony. His initial court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
Between August and November, while Miller was in charge of supervising female inmates at the Kiesel Correctional Facility, "the Weber County Sheriff's Office discovered information that there was a deputy that was having sexual relations with inmates at the facility," according to charging documents.
The Weber County Attorney's Office was called to conduct an independent investigation and discovered two women inmates allegedly had sex with Miller at the jail, the charges state.6 comments on this story
"One inmate said that she had intercourse over 10 times while in the facility, the other inmate said she had sexual intercourse one time in the facility. Both claim the sexual conduct was consensual," according to charging documents.
During an interview with Miller, he "lied about providing one of the inmates with his personal cellphone number so she could call him after she was released so they could have a romantic relationship," according to the charges.
The investigation into Miller began in November, according to a statement from the Weber County Sheriff's Office. He was placed on administrative leave on Dec. 10.
