INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A City-County councilor facing two counts of child molesting was at a neighborhood association meeting that at least one of his victims attended Tuesday night, and members of the group called police, authorities said.

A Hendricks County judge had issued orders that Jeffrey Miller have “no contact” with the two girls alleging child molesting.

Sgt. Christopher Wilburn with Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said, after the phone calls, officers were sent to the Fletcher Place Neighborhood Association meeting at a venue in the 600 block of Virginia Avenue. The officers detained Miller and informed him officially that the “no contact” orders make it his responsibility to avoid contact with the girls.

Miller left the meeting without incident after talking with the IMPD officers, Wilburn said.

Miller, a Republican, has faced calls from Republican leaders to resign.

Miller was charged in mid-November. He appeared in court last week for an initial hearing, hours before he represented his district at a City-County Council meeting. He has a pretrial conference scheduled March 16 in Hendricks County.
