US Paedophile Gregory James Miller sentenced to 38 years in jail in Pattaya Thailand

US expat Gregory 'Greg' Miller, from Madison, Wisconsin, who previously worked as a teacher in various schools in Thailand, was on 14th November 2013 sentenced to 38 years imprisonment for sexually assaulting a nine year old boy on ten occasions between January and June 2012.

In passing sentence the presiding Judge said that Miller's conduct over such a long period and repeatedly sexually assaulting such a young child justified an extremely harsh sentence. The sentence is one of the highest ever imposed in Thailand for this type of offence - the maximum penalty for the offence is life imprisonment.

Greg Miller was arrested in Pattaya in June 2012, and subsequently pleaded guilty on 28th October 2013 to sexually assaulting the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Miller was sentenced on 14th November 2013 to 38 years in prison, and is currently in Rayong Prison, near Pattaya.

Miller is suspected of sexually assaulting at least five other boys, all under the age of 12. Following his arrest evidence came to light that Miller was stalking young boys and video taping them at school functions.
