ADA, Okla. — Former P.A. announcer for the Thunder, Jim Miller, has been charged with half a dozen child sexual abuse charges.

The additional counts follow charges last month for similar allegations in Oklahoma County.

He’s accused of graphic sexual abuse of two, now grown women.

The incidents allegedly took place in Pontotoc County and started when the victims were just 5 years old and ended when they were 11. 

When the girls were questioned in the first cases involving a young boy in Harrah, they decided to come forward and charges were filed.      

“They thought it had stopped and they would’ve taken it to the grave until they found out what happened in Harrah,” Pontotoc County District Attorney Chris Ross said.

Miller’s bond was set at $100,000 and his next court date is scheduled for July.
