Couple accused of sex crimes

A North Powder couple faces an arraignment this afternoon for multiple charges of sex crimes.

Joe Cordell Miller, 69, and Faith Rosalind Miller, 55, were arrested Friday by the Union County Sheriff’s Office on a secret indictment warrant charging the couple with numerous crimes, including rape, sodomy and sex abuse.

Sgt. Bill Miller of the Union County Sheriff’s Office said the couple is being held at the Union County Correctional Facility on $250,000 bail each.

“There are 32 counts on him, including a number of Measure 11 crimes,” he said.

Of the 32 charges Joe Miller faces, 20 are felonies, Miller said. He faces multiple counts each of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree unlawful penetration, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree sexual abuse, incest, third-degree sex abuse, sexual misconduct, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and first-degree criminal mistreatment.

His wife, Faith Miller, faces multiple counts of first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, second-degree sexual abuse, incest, third-degree sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and first-degree criminal mistreatment. Seventeen of those charges are felonies, Miller said.
