There are more questions tonight about what happened when a well-known teacher and coach was picked up for sexual battery.
Instead of being booked into jail, he got what amounts to a get out of jail free card, and many believe that is because of who he knows.
Last week, Channel 4 News reported two spa employees accused John Miller Sr. of inappropriate behavior, and now a third alleged victim has come forward.
Miller, 80, is the former director of Clarksville schools, the former headmaster of Clarksville Academy and the former athletic director at Austin Peay State University.
When he was recently arrested on a charge of sexual battery, he wasn't jailed and wasn't forced to pay a dime of bail.
In the arrest warrant, the bond and bail amount is scratched out with a pen, and in its place is a note that says, "Cite per Judge Grimes." Also, the word "arrested" was scratched out to instead say "cite."
"This is just par for the course for him," Carol Burkhart said.
Burkhart was a teacher at Clarksville Academy when Miller was headmaster. Burkhart said she and several others were abused by Miller over and over again.
"He should have been stopped. He needs to be put in his place," Burkhart said.
Burkhart said she asked for help, and when she couldn't get it she filed suit for sexual harassment.
Eventually, they reached a settlement and Burkhart quit.
"It cost me more than anyone will ever know," Burkhart said.
As for Miller, he retired from Clarksville Academy. Our news partners at the Leaf-Chronicle uncovered documents showing that Ray Grimes happened to be a chairman on the board of trustees during Miller's employment there.
Now, the situation has some calling for big changes.
"It is a problem. There's no question about it," Tony Gottlieb said.
Gottlieb has been pushing for judicial reform for a long time.
"Clearly, we have an abusive situation here where someone has filed a complaint and the judge is diverting the due process, and I don't know what else to call it but official misconduct," Gottlieb said.
Grimes has not returned calls for comment, even though his secretary assures us he is getting the messages.
And Miller's wife said Tuesday that Miller has no comment.
Prior to his arrest this month, Miller had never been charged with a crime before. The sexual battery charge he faces now is a felony, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for October.
