Miller was sexually assaulted in 2015 by Brock Turner. As “Emily Doe,” she delivered a powerful impact statement at his sentencing that went viral. The judge then sentenced Turner, an Oakwood native, to six months in jail.

He was released after three months, and is now registered as a Tier III sex offender in Greene County.

Miller released a memoir “Know my Name” about the incident in September and appeared on 60 minutes.
