Former Priest Sentenced to 20 Years

Roman Catholic pleaded guilty to decades of sexual abuse

May 27, 2003 | AP

A retired Roman Catholic priest at the forefront of the Louisville archdiocese’s sex-abuse scandal was sentenced to 20 years in prison Tuesday for decades of sexual misconduct against children.

The Rev. Louise E. Miller, 72, pleaded guilty in March in Jefferson County Circuit Court to 44 counts of indecent and immoral practices and six counts of sexual abuse. The 21 victims are now all adults.

Miller took “full moral responsibility†for his crimes and said, “I stand before God to be judged later.â€

He blamed his crimes on “whatever mental illness I might have had.â€

“I hope someday I can have your forgiveness,†Miller said.

Miller is the first of four priests or former priests who faced criminal charges in the state. Dozens are accused in a wave of lawsuits.
