On January 30, 2020, Roy Thomas Miller, age 45, of Hill City, Minn., was sentenced to 189 months in prison. Pursuant to a plea agreement, Miller previously plead guilty to four counts of felony First Degree Assault on a Peace Officer with Deadly Force, one count of felony Second Degree Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and one misdemeanor count of Domestic Assault. The plea agreement called for a sentencing range between 170-189 months in prison. At the sentencing hearing, Itasca County Attorney Matti Adam asked the court to impose the maximum sentence under that agreement based upon the seriousness of the offenses, the risks to public safety, and the lasting effects on the victims and families involved. After the presentation of victim impact statements and arguments of counsel, District Court Judge Sarah McBroom agreed and noted that while Miller was remorseful, the acts called for the maximum sentence requested. These offenses occurred when Miller opened fire on officers who responded to a domestic violence incident in southern Itasca County in February 2019.
