Cleveland Councilman Eugene Miller Sentenced For DUI

eugene millerEugene Miller, a Cleveland City Councilman was sentenced on May 14, 2013 for a DUI he received in November of 2012. As a result of his DUI, Miller has had his driver’s license revoked and was given a $250 fine plus court costs which totaled to $486 with time to pay. The Cleveland Councilman was pulled over on November 1, 2012 at around 1 a.m. for speeding on his way home from a college football game. According to the ticket issued by police, Miller was cited for speeding, going 70 mph in a 50 mph zone.

Police said that while his blood alcohol content was .056%, which is below the legal limit of .08%, they were still able to determine that he was an impaired driver. Miller was arrested for OVI (Operating a Vehicle while Impaired), which is a similar offense to DUI in Ohio. Miller’s OVI case was amended and his speeding charged dropped after he plead not guilty to DUI. Since Miller is a Cleveland City Councilman, all of the Municipal Court Judges recused themselves from hearing the case and visiting judge Michael Weigand from Barberton heard the case instead. Since Miller’s license was suspended immediately following his arrest, his licence will be reinstated on May 24.
