CECIL COUNTY MAN CHARGED WITH AIR POLLUTION VIOLATION


Attorney General J. Joseph Curran announced today that Kenneth Miller, 51, of Elk Mills Road, in Elk Mills Maryland has been charged in Cecil County with air pollution. The charging document alleges that on September 15, 2004 and January 12, 2005 Miller violated the law by causing and permitting open fires for which he should have obtained a permit.

If convicted of these offenses, Miller could receive a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a $25,000 fine for each count. The filing of a criminal information is merely an accusation of criminal wrongdoing and each individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

These charges follow a joint investigation conducted by the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Office of the Attorney General, the Maryland State Police, and the Cecil County Health Department. Miller’s hearing date has been set for July 26, 2005 in the District Court of Maryland for Cecil County.
