I am the oldest daughter of Frank Miller, the man that alot of you have been inquireing about.

Yes he was put in the Union Co. jail on November 16,2010 by Judge Barrett for Contempt of court.
(Not being able to pay his ex-wife another $125,000.00. He hasa missed Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, his 78th birthday, and Valentines Day with his family and locked up for not having the money to pay her more.

We have tried to sell some of the land he purchased 40 years ago here, he and my mother (who passed away 3 years ago) bought and paid for themselves. He built the house here with his own 2 hands, cleared land, built a small barn, a tin roofed garage, and a tree house for all of this grand children, again with his own hands.

He had recently had both of his hips replaced and can hardly walk any longer.

He is a vetran of the Koren was- U.S. Air Force with several metals, Became a pastor and then was directed by the Lord to becoem a missionary to the
cannibals in New Guinea, wheree our family all spent several years with the headhunters there.

He also worked for the Department of Corrections in the education department, went on to get his Masters degree in education, taught school in the Public and Private sectures.

He then went into Law enforcement for the Broward County Sherrif's Department and retired from there in Florida, while building everything up here for his children and grandchildren.

We, the family have had to sell personal items to come up with money needed for an Attorney and we will have another day in Court tomorrow, Friday 9:00 am.

My husband and I moved back up here again (after 23 yrs.) the middled of October to take care of him and house and land...we had been here 4 weeks when this happened..we had been out of work due to the economey problems and it took all we had to just get back here.

We have had 10 acres up for sale for a couple of years and have dropped the price 5 times and no sale.. there is no savings and only enough to take care of the mortage, monthly bills, food, etc. from his retirement and social security checks.

We have also been looking for work to help. Jobs are scarce of course this time of the year.

We have no idea how things will go tomorrow am in Court, but are praying and askin God to please intervine and get our Daddy out of Jail.

He has committed no crime other than being poor, and his health leaves him unable to work.

Please pray for us at this time, if you can support us by being there, and if you know anyone related to the news media in all surrounding counties, and especially Atlanta.. please contact them with our story and ask them to come and cover this matter in court for us. W are hopeing that someone will here our story, cover it, talk to us and be able to help in any possible way.

THANK YOU, and GOD Bless you everyone.

Our local Judges use the contempt order to freely. It does no good to put a man in jail that doesn't have the ability to pay a debt. That was one of the reasons this country was formed. England had debtor prisons and many people who came to the new country had been imprisoned there. We can only wait for another election and maybe next time someone will listen. I wish you all the best at getting your father out of jail. I don't know if maybe the best way to break this abuse of power is to let the jail get full of people and the county keeping them up. It's better than the nursing home.

So sad. I wish you the best. I doubt you will get media up here, if there is no snow on the ground they don't come.

I will pray for his release. It's a shame that our judicial system in this area is so corrupt. You certainly won't get any help from the local "media". Good luck tomorrow!

Ask the judge if you could give the ten acres to pay off $125,000.00 . Just unsist that this would create a clean break and free up your father.

I agree with you on most things Reb, in fact the only thing I have disagreed with you on was your support of Barrett and this is why. I have witnessed first hand his cruel self important behavior and I have to question his judgement in many cases. Just because you have the power to do something doesn't mean it should always be the first option. Judges need to temper their decision with a little reality, reason, and even on occassion, compassion. Just my opinion and I honestly don't see how this particular judge Keeps getting voted back in. I know of several others who have had their life disrupted unfairly because of debt or an inability to meet someone else's idea of how much of their life's blood an ex spouse should be awarded. I will certainly pray for this man and his family and I truly hope the media does get involved because a spotlight on this type of judgement has been needed for a very long time!
would like to help
