Jury finds former Benton County attorney not guilty of sex crime

After a two-week trial and a short two-hour deliberation, a jury on Friday acquitted former Benton County Attorney Philip Miller of two counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Miller retired at the end of his term in 2022 after nearly a decade as the top prosecutor in the central Minnesota county.

"It was a quick verdict and in my head, based on my 34 and a half years working in courts, I figured a quick verdict was a good thing," Miller said Monday. "But being on the other side of things is a surreal experience."
