"old fashioned", you are just as sad as the people involved in this case. i feel sorry for YOUR family, because i'll bet you are a hateful, selfish, unforgiving person....quick to pass judgement on those you do not know, jumping to conclusions, creating your own reasoning for your hatred. pathetic. you don't know the real story here, and you never will.

Wow. To retain one of the best trial lawyers in the area, and then drag it out over two years(accumalating countless billable hours), that is ALOT to spend for a plea bargain. The irony is that any half-witted public defender could have produced the same outcome, DOH!! I wonder what the 'years sentenced' to 'money out of pocket' ratio is; $10,000 a year,$12,000 a year $15,000 a year? Double DOH! " I swear paw, I'll pay every red cent back as soon as I start working in the prison license plate shop", DOH! And remember kids, only the innocent sign plea bargains...

I was angered that he ONLY got 15 years! They are also giving him time served! He will only do 1/3 of that!!! He will be walking the streets in no time!
Im glad the lawyer socked it to them! If they are dumb enough to hire him, let him rip them off! I hope his entire "good family" learned a lesson from that! Their son is not the person they think he is. He is a cold blooded murderer. Who deserves alot more time in prison!
hang him

Glad to see all you fine upstanding people are convicting his family who by the way did not do anything. Both parties involved reputations are questionable so don't forget that the next time you are more than happy to bash families. Condolences to both families because both have lost dearly. By the way "Can you hear that" I am not for sure what you are trying to prove. Seems you want your post to sound intelligent and they just end up being sarcasticly stupid. LOL Oh well what ever floats your boat this is why we live in the red white and blue. Everyone has a right to their opionion and I guess that's yours. Is that DUH or DOH?

Well Duh, if this man shot your father in the back of the head to get money for drugs would you really want him serving a 6-7 year prison sentence for it? I am sickenly disheartened that this is all the time he will serve! Yes this is the " red, white, and blue" but where is J-U-S-T-I-C-E for the dead?

And good ole Bill was a child molester and if he was such a good man why did the morgan county court system not recognize him as a drug and rehabilitation worker? Cause he dealt drugs you dumbass...why do you think Dustin went to see him? you stupid ass people don't begin to know the story so until you do I suggest you find something else to talk about... 2 families have been destroyed here and its all over drugs...as far a Bill Miller he was a child molester and a drug dealer and I know this all for a fact...Have a great day and hope your family doesn't get caught up with people who pretend to be something they aren't..and stop and think before you post shit..it could very easily have been someone in your family that this could have happened to...especially in morgan county with all the drugs and shit there!!!

BILL MILLER WAS NOT A CHILD MOLESTER and if anyone thanks that they are a FOOL.Ive known Bill for 20 plus years never said or done anything out of the way.Yes Bill had his faults but by god so do you.You didnt like Bill cause you was probably one of the dope heads he was tryin to help.He was not a drug dealer so there for you know no facts.You need to stop and think before you post SHIT and it could and have happened to someone in my family but it could have been your family to and drugs are every where not just morgan county.

Yes Bill Miller was both a drug dealer& child molester. I have known him many year's longer than you& I Know For a fact that he was.I liked him alot myself,yet until last year. I truely know what he did to children &my own chid confessed to what he did to him last year. Had I had known, this before his death, I would be in court with him,& no I have never done a drug with him ever.Nor do I do drugs. So .yes he sadly harmed children.So we reap what we sew.All of us do & will either In this life or the one to come,That is judgement not justice.

Well,I met the man 30 yrs. back.He liked pot and beer then.I was around him alot.He got bad on drugs at one time.I never seen anything that would cause me to think he was a Bad man.I saw him improve if anything.If Bill bothered anybody I never knew.If he hurt any kids why was he not prosecuted???BILL MILLER did not deserve to die that way,in the house he was born and raised in.The only reason Dustin went for the plea deal was Heather walker young!!!! She got life with no parole until 51 yrs.Any fool knows YOU can't trust a jury......ANY WHERE.

fight the good fight and where there is no good fight to fight plea bargain to keep the truth from being heard in a public trial then slander the victim in an atempt to hide your shame.Yes please tell me once again there is no confession so i can truly know what to believe before you tell me what you have to say about Bill.If i believed you then shame on you if i believe you now shame me.

Most people agree that suprise morning sex is a wonderful beautiful experience.

Just wondering if Dustin would agree with that statement these days??

DIDNT know either one of them, but I know if the kid goes to prison he will get what he deserves when he closes his eyes he may not see BILL,he will see someone looking him in the eyes, with a smile and a shank, and no suprise then justice will be served, one way or the other GO GET HIM BUBBA FRESH MEAT
