Well, no surprise, Kenneth Miller's motion to dismiss for failure to state an offense or for improper venue is denied. The Court did leave open the possibility that Vermont may not be the appropriate venue for the charges, and requests supporting evidence from the Prosecution. What strikes me the most is the assumption, for the purposes of trying Kenneth Miller, that Lisa Miller is already guilty of the charges in which Kenneth Miller is being tried as an accomplice. This flies in the face of the concept that guilt cannot be assumed but must be first proven. Lisa Miller is not available to try, however, and we don't do trials in absentia in America, so they are going after Ken. And he will have his day in court.
