Response from District Attorney Sim Gill to Justin
Miller’s Statement Regarding Salt Lake County
morning, Justin Miller pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony relating to
money he stole from Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams’ campaign.
Mr. Miller claimed he is “accepting responsibility” by admitting guilt
for criminal conduct he has publicly and vigorously denied for months.
in his statement, Mr. Miller again attempted to deflect from his own felonious
misconduct by claiming he is cooperating with an “ongoing federal investigation
into Salt Lake County.” I have personally spoken with the United States
Attorney’s Office and the FBI. I have offered to make the County
available to any inquiries, but I have received no such requests. Based on my conversations with those agencies, Mr. Miller’s
claim is incorrect and I have no reason to believe there is an investigation of
Salt Lake County.
