Jury acquits Athens man in domestic violence strangulation case


By Joe Johnson

A Clarke County jury on Tuesday acquitted an Athens man of all charges that stemmed from his arrest last year for a domestic violence incident.

The verdict quickly came at the end of a one-day trial in which Western Judicial Circuit District Attorney Deborah Gonzalez was lead prosecutor.

Jeremy Lamar Miller, 35, was arrested on July 27, 2022, after he reportedly choked his former girlfriend during an altercation at the victim's Parkview Homes residence in which Miller allegedly strangled the woman while three children ages 3, 5 and 8 were present.

The victim stated that Miller “was upset because they had broken up and she had her ex-husband in the residence, “according to Lt. Shaun Barnett of the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

Miller was subsequently indicted for aggravated assault, false imprisonment, simple battery, and third-degree cruelty to children.

Gonzalez is a narcist female dog that needs to take her entertainment law degree & go to Hollywood where she'll fit in with the rest of the narcists. She hasn't done ONE GOOD THING FOR THIS CITY. Actually, she's single-handily taking this city down. Get her out!!!!

Has DA Gonzales successfully prosecuted a case and gotten a conviction yet?

Does anyone know how many cases she has personally prosecuted and how many resulted in convictions?

So what was district attorney Gonzalez saying? That only conservatives want her removed from office and that she’s somehow a political victim and that her form of dispensing justice and preserving the rights of the innocent victims is working? Somebody tell that to me again, how this is working? Is THIS case something she can brag about?

I know that DA Gonzalez has generally been on a losing streak for mishandling cases or screwing up the evidence or not including information in the case that the jury needs to here and that would have been allowed in court.
