Monroe man on probation sent to jail after incident with son, 5

MONROE - A Monroe man was sentenced to eight months in jail earlier this month after having his probation revoked on misdemeanor convictions of disorderly conduct and battery.

Timothy Scott Miller, 31, was ordered to begin his jail sentence April 4. He owes the court $1,086 in fines, costs and supervision fees.

The original convictions in Green County Circuit Court stem from an incident at a Monroe home in September 2016. Court records indicate he called a woman foul names, strangled her and punched her in the face when she refused to have sex with him.

He was placed on 18 months of probation in June; however, his probation agent revoked his probation in March after finding that Miller was routinely driving without a valid license and had thrown a speaker at his 5-year-old son on Feb. 7 in frustration that the boy was not getting ready for school.

The incident was reported to police after the boy came to school with injuries. An investigation by human services found that lack of supervision, possible drug trafficking and lots of "inappropriate" visitors were a routine problem in the home, according to the agent's report.

The boy told police his father threw the speaker at him, but Miller denied it, claiming instead he slipped on dog urine and knocked it over.

"Mr. Miller clearly has trouble controlling his emotions, which has led to his current violations, including his son to be harmed," the agent wrote. "Revocation is necessary to protect his son, his girlfriend's children and the community."
