I spent some time looking over the sex offender website for NC. It appears to me that about 1/2 of these guys recieved probation only sentences.
At the time of the crimes, which occurred April 9, 2004, Miller was dating the infants mother, who was at work during the abuse. Miller burned the child with a lighter, branded an X on the infant and broke the childs jaw. The doctors report listed 15 injuries the child sustained, which included bleeding of the brain, heavy bruising, cuts and multiple circular burns.
