Reading from a sheet of yellow legal paper, Robert Miller apologized on Monday for the “problems” and “damages” he did to a young girl and her family.
During the course of a five-year “relationship” with the little girl, Miller said he fell for her romantically, according to Huron County assistant prosecutor Dina Shenker.
“The defendant went on to send the victim a poem where he admitted that he was in love with her,” Shenker said. “Here are the final words of the poem: ‘If you ever meet a girl who takes your breath away, you’ll understand the joy I found with my sweet, sweet (victim’s name).”
