Man found guilty of incest sentenced to 30 years in prison

A 39-year-old man found guilty by a jury Friday of incest and criminal sexual conduct will spend the better part of 30 years in prison. A circuit court judge sentenced James Wayne Miller to consecutive 10- and 20-year sentences for sexually assaulting his own daughter for more than a year during 2011 and 2012. He will have to serve at least 85 percent of the 30 years before he is eligible to be released from prison.
