Sentencing date changes for developer
Question of the Day
GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Sentencing has been delayed for an Alabama developer who filled wetlands near Bay St. Louis in violation of the Clean Water Act.
The Sun Herald reported (http://bit.ly/1kHHRDk) William R. “Rusty” Miller, of Fairhope will be sentenced April 17 in U.S. District Court.
His sentencing had been set for March 17. Chief District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. changed the date after Miller’s attorney asked for more time to review a pre-sentence investigation report.
Miller faces up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
He had been set for trial on an 11-count indictment involving wetlands violations on a 1,710-acre parcel west of the intersection of Mississippi Highway 603 and Interstate 10.
Miller was part owner of three businesses that began buying land in Hancock County in 2001 for commercial and residential development.
He accepted a plea agreement Dec. 17 on a charge of unpermitted filling of wetlands.
Miller admitted he drained and filled wetlands at 10 sites without a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers.
