Juneau man pleads guilty to drug crimes

Associated PressMay 23, 2012 

JUNEAU -- A 32-year-old Juneau man described as a street-level drug dealer has changed his plea in a last-minute deal.

Rorie Christopher Miller changed his plea to guilty Tuesday, the same day his jury trial was to begin in Juneau Superior Court.

The Juneau Empire says Miller agreed to plead guilty to two felony drugs charges.

He admits to selling two oxycodone pills to an undercover police informant and knowingly possessing heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana when he was arrested on July 8, 2010.

Miller successfully avoided police on three occasions before he was arrested last July on an outstanding warrant after being shot with a stun gun three times. A sentencing hearing is set for September.
