Tahquamenon teacher charged with sexual assault

NEWBERRY — A Tahquamenon Area Schools teacher was recently charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the third degree, which is a felony.

Carrie Ann Miller was arraigned on the charges June 18 in the Luce County 92nd District Court.

The complaint alleges that the 48-year-old sexually assaulted a 16-year-old student at Tahquamenon Area Schools where she was employed as a teacher at the time, according to a press release issued by the Luce County Prosecuting Attorney’s office.

Both charges stem from activity alleged to have occurred at the school beginning in January 2018.

Additional charges are possible pending the outcome of an ongoing investigation, authorities said. The maximum punishment for third-degree criminal sexual conduct is 15 years in prison.

Miller will be in court at 3 p.m. today for a probable cause hearing, said Luce County Prosecuting Attorney Joshua Freed.
