This week, one high-profile criminal case will move forward in the Pasadena Branch of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Here’s an update and profile of the case.

Preliminary Hearing for Anthony Joseph Miller, February 20

Anthony Joseph Miller, 52, is charged with sexually assaulting five women in August and September 2018, and an earlier assault sometime in 2011.

He now faces five counts of forcible rape, two counts each of forcible oral copulation, sodomy by use of force and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime, and one count each of sexual battery by restraint and false imprisonment by violence.

Miller was arrested on September 27, 2018 by Pasadena police officers after they obtained an arrest warrant resulting from the investigation of three separate sexual assault incidents reported to the police in 2018 in Pasadena and the assault in 2011.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges on October 1, 2018.

If convicted as charged, Miller faces more than 270 years to life in state prison. He remains in custody. Bail has been set at more than $10 million.

Deputy District Attorney Fernanda Barreto is prosecuting.
