2nd ID soldier sentenced to three months of hard labor
CAMP RED CLOUD, South Korea — Pvt. Brandon I. Miller was sentenced to three months of hard labor without confinement and a bad-conduct discharge Thursday at Camp Casey.
Miller, a soldier with the 2nd Infantry Division’s 4th Battalion, 7th Cavalry, was convicted by a court-martial jury of resisting apprehension, unauthorized absence, assaulting a noncommissioned officer and communicating a threat.
He was found not guilty on a second count of communicating a threat but guilty to the offense of “provoking words or gestures.”
On Dec. 31, Miller shoved a sergeant who had been assigned to make sure he remained on base into a wall locker and behind a door. He then went to Seoul, according to testimony Tuesday.
Miller also threatened repeatedly during a cell-phone call to cut the throat of another soldier in January.
Miller’s multiple crimes occurred in separate incidents from March 2005 to January 2006. He was placed in confinement on Feb 3.
