Stuarts Draft Pastor Found Guilty in Same-Sex Union Custody Case

Posted: Updated:

A Mennonite pastor convicted of helping a woman flee the country with her child rather than share custody of the girl with her former same-sex partner says he's willing to "accept the consequences of my actions."

A federal jury in Burlington issued its verdict Tuesday against Kenneth Miller, of Stuarts Draft, Va.

Miller was charged with helping Lisa Miller and her daughter, Isabella, leave the country in September 2009. Lisa Miller was on the brink of losing custody to her former partner Janet Jenkins, of Fair Haven, Vt., for refusing to comply with visitation orders.

The Millers are not related.

Lisa Miller and Isabella were last known to be in Nicaragua.

Kenneth Miller could receive three years in prison for being convicted of international parental kidnapping.
