Greensburg man accused of sending teen nude photos for distribution
A Greensburg man is charged with texting nude photographs of his ex-girlfriend, the mother of a Norwin High School student, to a student at the school who continued to spread the photos, police say.
Joe Miller, 25, of Milbee Lane, is charged with dissemination to minors and corruption of minors. He was released from jail on $10,000 unsecured bail.
James Welsh III, listed as Miller's attorney in court documents, declined comment.
A staff member at the high school contacted the North Huntingdon Police Department in May when he learned a student received nude images of another student's mother, according to court records. That student told police a relationship had ended between his mother and Miller, and that several nude pictures of her were circulating among his friends.
Police said they talked to the 17-year-old student who received the photos. The teen told police he received text messages from Miller, along with several nude photographs of the woman.
The text messages stated that Miller hated his girlfriend's son and he wanted his life ruined, according to court documents. The teen told police that Miller threatened him and told him to send the pictures to his friends.
The teen told police he sent the photographs because he was scared. He said Miller used to be his baseball coach, according to court documents.
Miller arrived at the police station on May 9, but told police he would not answer any questions. His phone, which was seized as evidence, contained four nude photographs of the woman, according to court documents.
A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 2 with North Huntingdon District Judge Doug Weimer.
