Governor appoints assistant prosecutor to lead role
A different face will be helming the Camden County Prosecuting’s Office, but it is not one that is new to the county.
Heather Miller has been appointed Camden County Prosecuting Attorney by Governor Eric Greitens with the announcement made January 31, 2018.
Miller, a Republican, has been an assistant prosecutor for the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office since 2012. She also serves as an instructor for Missouri State University’s Public Safety Training Center.
Miller succeeds Michael Gilley, whom Greitens appointed as an associate circuit judge for Camden County last year after Judge Aaron Koeppen moved from the associate division to circuit court to replace retiring Judge Stan Moore.
Miller came to the Camden County legal team after serving as an intern with the prosecuting attorney in Pulaski County. She attended law school in Alabama, but is originally from Alaska.
Miller said she is looking forward to leading the prosecuting attorney's office. She said her time with Camden County has been good training allowing her to get exposure to all types of cases, learn what resources are available and become familiar with Camden County.
Miller's appointment does leave an open position within the prosecutor's office. She said she hopes to have that position filled soon.
"I feel I am ready to step in," Miller said. A goal, she said, is to make the prosecutor's office more accessible to the public. Along those lines, Miller plans to have a web and Facebook page to share with the community.
Miller and her husband, who is originally from Lebanon, Missouri, reside in the Camdenton area.
