[November 20, 2017]
On November 14, 2017, Associate Judge
William Workman sentenced Dustin Miller to 30 years in the Illinois
Department of Corrections for the offense of Drug Induced Homicide.
Miller was found guilty in August 2017 of the offense by a Logan
County Jury after a three day jury trial.
At the sentencing hearing, the prosecution presented evidence of Mr.
Miller’s criminal history. This history included testimony of multiple
drug deliveries made by Dustin Miller - some of which were made while on
pretrial bond for a previous felony case in Logan County.
“Our first thoughts are with the family of Clint Clark,” stated Jonathan
C. Wright. “His loss can never be replaced but we hope that this will
bring a sense of justice for the family,” continued Wright. “We are very
pleased with the sentence Judge Workman ordered. It is our hope that
this strong sentence sends a clear message that drug dealing will be
prosecuted and punished – particularly where it contributes to the loss
of life,” stated Wright. The 30 year prison sentence is the maximum
sentence for the offense of Drug Induced Homicide.

In this case, Dustin Miller was on felony pretrial bond when he
committed this offense of drug induced homicide. As a result, Dustin
Miller will not begin to serve this 30 year sentence until after he
has served his current 20 year sentence for Unlawful Participation
in Methamphetamine Production.
