John Miller, a Blue Island police officer, is charged with two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault. Miller, 51, appeared for a bond hearing at the criminal courthouse in Bridgeview - but it never happened. The hearing was transferred to another courthouse after his defense attorney convinced the judge that he had no jurisdiction to hear the case because the alleged crimes happened in Blue Island, which is in another jurisdiction.
Cook County sheriff's deputies arrested Miller on Wednesday morning, about a week after investigators said someone came to the Blue Island Police Department accusing the veteran cop of a sex crime. Police officials then called in the Cook County sheriff's office, which began investigating the allegations.
