Convicted sex offender admits to child pornography offense

ATLANTIC CITY-- A city resident and registered sex offender admitted he persuaded a minor in Texas to send him sexually explicit material over the Internet, Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Diane Ruberton said Tuesday.

Following a joint investigation launched by the prosecutor's office and authorities in Texas, Sherman W. Miller, 49, was arrested Feb. 4, 2016, and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, obscenity, failure to register as a sex offender and failure to notify as a sex offender a change of address. Miller was held on $50,000 bail and has remained in custody since his arrest. 

Further investigation revealed Miller contacted children ranging in age from 9 to 14 in Michigan, Georgia, Massachusetts, California, Missouri, South Carolina and Mississippi, the prosecutor's office said.

Miller was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years, of which he must serve 10 years and 2 months before becoming eligible for parole. Upon his release from prison he will be subject to lifetime parole supervision and Megan's Law registration, and is barred from having contact with his victims.
