JAY – A former Delaware County Sheriff’s deputy pleaded no contest to falsifying sheriff’s records about his girlfriend and received a six-month deferred sentence, court officials said Monday.

Jonathan Floyd Wilson, 50, of Monkey Island, was charged in Delaware County District Court in Jay with falsifying sheriff department records, a felony.

He also was charged $1,146 in fines and costs.

Wilson was charged after he failed to take the fingerprints of Tami Miller, 35, of Monkey Island, and falsified information about her.

It was during the investigation that Delaware County authorities discovered the relationship between Miller and Wilson, the affidavit states.

Miller pleaded no contest to perjury and false reporting of a crime and received a six-month deferred sentence.

“The only thing she (Miller) lied about was saying the previous (police) report and testimony was a lie,” Winston Connor II, Attorney for Wilson and Miller.

Connor said Miller was a victim of domestic abuse and stalking from her former husband.

 “Many people witnessed the physical injuries but as is typical with domestic abuse she (Miller) created cover-up stories to protect the abuser,” Connor said.

Court records show in March and September 2007, Miller filed two protective orders against Daniel Miller. They were both dismissed and costs were assessed to Tami Miller for filing a frivolous court document

Miller was to surrender to Delaware County authorities on a felony warrant of perjury and falsifying information, according to an arrest affidavit. As part of the arrest, her mug shot and her fingerprints were to be taken; also her social security number was to be added to her book-in record, the affidavit states.

When investigators reviewed Miller’s file, they found no clear photograph, no social security number and no set of fingerprints, the affidavit states.
