Not guilty plea by man in Vt. lesbian custody case

Published: Wed, May 25, 2011 @ 10:57 a.m.

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A Tennessee missionary charged with helping a woman get her child out of the United States as part of a high-profile lesbian custody case in Vermont says he’s not guilty.

Timothy David Miller, who was indicted May 12 for allegedly helping Lisa Miller abscond with her 9-year-old daughter Isabella, didn’t attend his arraignment Wednesday in federal court in Burlington. A public defender entered the not guilty plea for him.

Prosecutors say he helped Miller — who’s unrelated to him — take Isabella to Nicaragua in 2009 as part of a custody dispute with former partner Janet Jenkins, of Fair Haven.

Timothy Miller, a Mennonite missionary, is free on bail.

Lisa Miller, of Virginia, and Jenkins were joined in a civil union in 2000 but broke up after having the child.

Since Lisa Miller is the childs biological mother I see no crime since there is no way that Janet Jenkins could have parented that child .

Janet Jenkins should do an in depth evaluation of her life and lifestyle . If she desires a child why not just get pregnant and give birth to one ?

I think, Stan, that she may be afraid of the "worm"!

We need to acknowledge Gay/Lesbian couples rights instead of having every other state with their own take on the matter.

In the pecking order I believe the "The Butch" considers herself the token stud . Since this is simply psychosomatic she still would be fully capable of being impregnated .

You people make me ashamed. Gays and Lesbians deserve the same rights and responsibilities as everyone else.

I see no crime in this matter . Lisa Miller was simply taking her biological child to where she chose . Since Janet Jenkins could in no way shape or form be the biological father, case closed .
