MONROE COUNTY, Ga. — A former Monroe County deputy who told a woman he'd reduce her DUI charges in exchange for sexual favors has been banned from the county, Macon news station WGXA reported.
Deputy William "Bill" Miller was arrested in August 2018 after a woman he arrested came forward with a recording of him offering to have her charges reduced in exchange for sex.
He was recently convicted of a felony bribery charge and violating his oath of office and sentenced to eight years of probation, the news station reported. He's also banned from entering Monroe, Lamar and Butts counties during that time.
Miller was arrested last year after the Monroe County Sheriff's Office was tipped off about an off-duty conversation the then-38-year-old had with a woman he arrested a month earlier. She refused his proposition, authorities said.
He was placed on administrative leave while the department called in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and FBI to investigate.
