Miller is facing charges in St. Croix County court of possession of child pornography and sexual exploitation of a child.

A motion filed by Miller's lawyer seeking to have Miller's alleged admissions suppressed from evidence prompted a hearing Tuesday, in which the agent who conducted the interview was called to testify about how the admissions were obtained.

Special Agent Jon Spallees with the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation was questioned about the day Miller was arrested and the statements he made to law enforcement officials.

Around 4 p.m., Dec. 16, 2008, Spallees said he and approximately 11 other law enforcement officials went to Miller's New Richmond home to execute a search warrant.

During the course of an interview, Spallees asked Miller when he first began viewing child pornography, and Miller allegedly responded that it'd been one or two years. Other details were also discussed.

Upon cross examination of Spallees, Miller's lawyer, Shirlene Perrin, said she didn't receive a copy of the transcript of the interview until Tuesday, the day of the hearing, and requested more time to go over it in order to prepare a proper cross examination for Spallees.

Judge Edward Vlack granted Perrin the extra time, and a status hearing was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. April 21.
