Grandfather sentenced to two life sentences for child molestation

The District Attorney announces the conviction of Luckie Odis Miller following a guilty verdict in Carroll County Superior Court on October 3, 2016.   The jury convicted the defendant of Aggravated Child Molestation, Aggravated Sexual Battery, and Child Molestation after a trial lasting a week and a half. 
 
Judge Dennis T. Blackmon sentenced the defendant to two LIFE sentences for the aggravated offenses and 20 years for the Child Molestation.   These were the maximum sentences allowed under Georgia law.  The 67 year old defendant will not be eligible for parole until he serves a minimum of 30 years in prison. 
 
This conviction arises from the Defendant’s heartless and perverted sexual acts committed in 2015 on a 5 year old family member. 
 
District Attorney Pete Skandalakis wishes to thank the jurors for their hard work on this difficult case. 
 
“Our laws enshrine the faith we have in regular citizens to directly participate in the administration of justice.  This verdict reaffirms that faith.  These good citizens have made it perfectly clear that the people of Carroll County will not tolerate the behavior of dangerous criminals who prey on the most vulnerable members of society. 
I wish to commend Detective Reagen Clayton and the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office for their superb efforts in building a rock solid case against this defendant.  As always, their competence, diligence, and professionalism have made our community a safer place,” he said. “I finally wish recognize Senior Assistant District Attorney Anne Allen, who has once again distinguished herself as Carroll County’s top prosecutor against sexual predators.   Since early August, this is the seventh conviction Ms. Allen has secured against a dangerous sexual felon.  She has a hard earned reputation for tenaciously pursuing justice on behalf of young, helpless victims. For the better part of a quarter century, the citizens of Carroll County, the Coweta Judicial Circuit, and the State of Georgia have been well served by this veteran prosecutor.”
