City in Ohio Agrees to Pay $4 Million to DNA Exoneree

The City of Cleveland Heights will pay $4 million to settle a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by a man wrongfully convicted of rape, according to his attorney, Sarah Gelsomino, partner, FG&G. Christopher Miller, 46, served nearly 17 years behind bars before he was exonerated by DNA in 2017.

Miller was convicted of the 2001 sexual assault and robbery of a Cleveland Heights woman. Miller always maintained his innocence.

“I had to keep fighting,” he said.

On the night of April 28, 2001, the victim was attacked as she returned home to her apartment, according to Miller’s complaint.
