Shelby Co. (ECWd) –

Tower Hill Township Road District employee Clinton Miller III has been arrested for multiple counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of A Child under the age of 10 years old.

Press Release from State’s Attorney:

“On Friday August 25, 2023, The Shelby County State’s Attorney, Robert T. Hanlon authorized the Illinois State Police to Arrest Clinton G. Miller, III of Tower Hill, Illinois on three criminal sex charges.  The victim was 10 years of age at the time of the criminal acts.  Miller reports his most recent employment was with the Tower Hill Township Road District.   Shortly after Miller’s arrest on late Friday, the court found probable cause existed for the arrest.   Charges filed today include two counts of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child (Class X felonies) and one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse (Class 1 Felony).  Each Class X felony in this case is punishable by up to 60 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. The people will be seeking consecutive sentences. In total based on the current charges, the Defendant faces 134 years as a potential sentence.  The State’s Attorney, Robert T. Hanlon is also asking the court to hold the Defendant without bond.”

“The public is reminded that the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty.”

We will update this article when we have more details pertaining to the failed action by law enforcement approximately 2 years ago when the first complaint was filed. The only information we have at this point is the case was administratively closed yet no one even questioned the alleged perpetrator of the crime at that time.

    If he is found guilty I believe he deserves the death penalty. Mercy to the criminal is cruelty to the victims….. the child was under 10 years old….. despicable!

    I’m having a real hard time getting past the last sentence in this story. Who closed the case that way, why and is it tied to the Chris Williams trial?
