Gary Miller, an officer with the Boise Police Department, had his case of driving under the influence in Boise come to a close last Monday. Miller pleaded guilty to Idaho DUI and the Fourth District Magistrate handed down a sentence of one year probation, 90 days in jail and a $750 fine. 87 days of the jail term were then suspended. The Magistrate also agreed to a withheld judgment, meaning if Miller completes the probation period without incident, the DUI arrest will be taken off his record.
Miller, 38, was off-duty when he was arrested April 26 for drunk driving by an Idaho State Police trooper. His blood-alcohol content was reportedly twice the legal limit. At the time of the arrest, Miller was given a citation but not booked into the Ada County jail. State Police cited general officer safety as the reason for the lack of standard booking procedure.
Miller, a 10 year veteran with the Boise police department, still faces internal sanctions from an internal investigation.
