Miller’s brother, Romir Miller, said his brother was unemployed and needed the money. He added his brother thought the girl was an adult.“She had an I.D. saying she was an adult,” said Romir Miller.The FBI estimates that nearly 300,000 teenagers are at risk of becoming victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
