Is this soldier getting railroaded?Submitted by JUSTCOMEHOME on Sat, 01/16/2010 - 12:41
GALESBURG, Ill. — An Illinois National Guard soldier in Afghanistan has been charged by the Army with possessing child pornography over pictures of a young relative his mother says she sent him.
Terri Miller of Galesburg says she sent her son, Spc. Billy Miller, pictures of the little girl to help him get over his homesickness.
The pictures show the child in a swimsuit playing a wading pool and sitting on a truck. In one, the girl is wearing a swim suit and part of her buttocks are exposed.
The Army says Miller will stay in Afghanistan until his court-martial. His unit came home last August. Miller faces jail time, if convicted.
Terri Miller says the pictures are innocent. She says her son is close to the girl.
