Mary and Ann Miller, the mother and sister of the Inwood man accused of drugging and having sex with his teenage employee and then plotting to kill him, pleaded guilty to the charges against them.
Mary Miller, 80, of Inwood, pleaded guilty on March 1 to official misconduct, the top charge against her, according to Chris Munzing, spokesperson for the Nassau County District Attorney. She received a conditional discharge and a $500 fine.
Ann Miller, 59, also of Inwood, pleaded guilty on March 1 to conspiracy in the sixth degree. She also received a conditional discharge and a $350 fine.
Police arrested Daniel Miller on April 19 and charged the Inwood shop owner with criminal sexual act in the first degree and other charges for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting a 17-year-old male employee. He then allegedly tried to hire a hit man to kill the teen to prevent him from testifying.
The elder Miller, who worked as a secretary at Lawrence High School, stole the then 17-year-old victim’s school file with the intention of giving it to a private investigator that was gathering information on the victim to help Daniel Miller’s case, according to prosecutors. It’s unclear whether she knew about the murder-for-hire plot.
Ann Miller handed over the file to someone with the hope of discrediting or deterring the teen from testifying.
Daniel Miller is due back in court on April 10.
