Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty Jr. announces that 32 year-old Terrell Miller of Roesch Street, Buffalo, pleaded guilty today, as charged, to one count of Burglary in the First Degree before the Honorable Kenneth Case in Erie County Court.  This was the highest charge for which Miller could have been convicted had he gone to trial. 

Miller admitted that on August 3, 2014, he and an accomplice, Michael Rojas, broke into a home on Crocker Street in Sloan with intent to commit a crime, and in the course of the burglary, Miller and Rojas pointed a firearm at the homeowner.  Rojas had previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 12 years in state prison.  Miller faces up to 25 years in state prison when he is sentenced on March 16, 2016 before Judge Case. 

The case was successfully prosecuted by Bureau Chief Paul E. Bonanno of DA Flaherty’s Special Investigations and Prosecutions Bureau.  The Cheektowaga Police Department deserves special credit for its thorough investigation of the case.
