San Tan Valley male sentenced to six years for child sex trafficking

62-YEAR-OLD MAN CAUGHT IN TUCSON POLICE STING TRYING TO PAY 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL FOR SEX

TUCSON — A San Tan Valley man, Jay Edward Miller, age 62, was sentenced to six years in prison for Child Sex Trafficking. Miller will be required to register as a sex offender.

Miller also has outstanding indictments in Pinal County (CR 2017-03075) with multiple counts of Surreptitious Viewing, and in Maricopa County (CR 2017-137947) for Child Sex Trafficking and Attempt to Commit Sexual Conduct with a Minor.

According to the Attorney General’s Office, “Miller began chatting online with an undercover Tucson Police Department (TPD) detective in August 2016. Miller, believing the undercover detective was a 13-year-old girl living in central Tucson, propositioned the officer for sex. The officer was reluctant, so Miller offered money for various sexual acts. Over the next six months, Miller continued his propositions. In March 2017, TPD and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) served a search warrant at Miller’s home, and Miller admitted that he had been chatting with the undercover officer and even destroyed the cell phone he had used for those conversations.
