Sentencing set in Vt. same-sex custody dispute

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A sentencing date has been set in a Vermont court for a Mennonite pastor convicted of helping a woman and her daughter flee the U.S. rather than allow the girl to have regular visits with the woman's former lesbian partner.

Kenneth Miller of Stuarts Draft, Va., faces up to three years in prison when he is sentenced in Burlington on March 4.

A civil lawsuit is also pending against Miller and others by the mother's former civil union partner, Janet Jenkins of Fair Haven.

Miller's attorneys are also continuing to fight a subpoena from federal prosecutors that he testify before a grand jury, presumably about other people involved in helping the woman, Lisa Miller, and her daughter travel to Nicaragua. The Millers are not related.
