A judge refused to allow the release from custody Tuesday of Adrian Miller because of his repeated violation of strict court orders.
A TRU student who was elected to the university’s board of governors before he ran afoul of the law earlier this year, Miller is in jail for breaching a conditional sentence order.
In April, Miller was convicted of multiple counts, including theft-under and falsely reporting an offence. He was given a 125-day sentence to be served in the community under strict conditions, to be followed by two years’ probation. He has breached the terms four times since then, most recently when two probation officers encountered him at Lansdowne Village Mall in violation of his curfew.
Miller applied for a judicial interim release, claiming his latest breach was not a breach but a result of confusion among authorities. Judge Sheri Donegan wasn’t prepared to take another chance and ordered him to be held for the remainder of his sentence.
“He plays fast and loose with the rules,” she said. “He walks a very fine line, telling one organization one thing, another organization another thing to allow him to control the process.”
