CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A lawsuit has been filed in the Kanawha County Circuit Court against a West Virginia State Trooper that allegedly drugged, kidnapped, and raped a woman in December 2021.
The complaint was filed on Tuesday by attorneys Dante di’Trapano and Jesse Forbes. Defendants in the case include Trooper Micheal J. Miller, the West Virginia State Police, Gunther-McNeely-Nowlan Post No. 19 of the American Legion, and the West Virginia Department of Homeland Security.
The incident is said to have occurred in Logan County in December of 2021. The complaint states that the plaintiff in the case was a customer at the American Legion Post No. 19 on the evening of December 17th where she began to feel ill and went to the women’s restroom.
The complaint further states that prior to December 17, the plaintiff had only met defendant Micheal Miller on one occasion. On that occasion, Miller approached the table where she and her friends were seated and showed his badge explaining he was a West Virginia State Trooper.
The complaint states that the plaintiff recalled sitting on the toilet with her head in her hands while feeling she was going to “pass out.” Several hours later, the plaintiff woke up in her own bed and had urine, feces, and blood covering her legs.
Her earrings had been ripped out of her ears, her hair was pulled out, and her teeth were damaged.
Following the incident, Miller sent the woman a request and message on social media asking her if he had left his hat in her car. She searched the car and located that hat.
The complaint alleges the West Virginia State Police and Logan County Sheriff’s Department had knowledge of allegations against Miller but did not take action or investigate him.
