Chilliwack violent sex offender pleads guilty to breach of long-term supervisor

Once designated a dangerous offender, Kevin Miller admits to using intoxicants while prohibited

A man on a long-term supervision order (LTSO) with a history of strangling women pleaded guilty to a breach of that order in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack on Nov. 4.

Kevin Scott Miller pleaded guilty to an element of his LTSO, specifically “not abstaining from intoxicants” between May 11, 2018 and June 24, 2018.

This was just three months after he was found not guilty of a similar breach in 2016.

In that case, Miller in September 2016 was living at the Chilliwack Community Correctional Centre (CCCC), a 31-bed federal facility on Rowat Avenue for offenders on statutory release or LTSOs. He purchased cannabis from an illegal dispensary a few blocks away, WeeMedical, which was later shut down by the City of Chilliwack.

The judge, however, found that he did not intend to violate the order as he had a dated prescription in hand.

Miller is on an LTSO because of his proclivity for strangling women and girls.

His first serious conviction in the mid-1990s involved the rape a 14-year-old girl near Victoria after grabbing her in a van and wrapping a cord around her neck. Two months after that, he violently strangled a 21-year-old woman he met at a bar downtown Victoria. Then, in 1996 during an altercation with a prostitute, Miller pulled a drawstring out of his jacket and strangled her with it until she passed out.

More than 20 years ago a psychiatrist testified that Miller’s psychopathic score was in the 86th percentile.

Miller appeared in court in Chilliwack on Nov. 4 via video link. He is now clean-shaven and wore standard, institutional-issued orange prison garb.

Crown counsel Henry Waldock and defence lawyer David Ferguson agreed to order a complex psychological assessment for Miller. The next day set for the case is Dec. 2 when the lawyers hope to be able to have the assessment ordered.

Miller was in the news in July of this year when his bid to launch a human rights complaint based on gender discrimination was rejected by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal.

While living at the Surrey Pretrial Centre, Miller launched a human rights complaint claiming discrimination based on mental and physical disability. He argued he was no reasonably being accommodated by being provided a second mattress, a drug-free pain management solution and timely and sufficient mental health services.

He then added the gender discrimination to the list after he found out about a police through which some mental health services are offered to women but not men.
