Man who ran over MHP trooper sentenced to life without parole

A man who ran over and seriously injured a Montana Highway Patrol trooper was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole on Wednesday.

Jason Allen Miller was found guilty in April on all counts, including attempted deliberate homicide, criminal endangerment, criminal mischief, criminal possession of dangerous drugs and aggravated kidnapping, as well as a sentencing enhancement for the use of a weapon, according to a press release from the Montana Attorney General’s Office.

In addition to the life sentence without parole in the Montana State Prison, Miller was sentenced to an additional 60 years for the other charges. He also owes over $1.2 million to the State for the trooper’s care and trial expenses and over $75,000 in restitution to the trooper’s family.

“Today we made it clear that violence against Montana law enforcement officers will not be tolerated,” Attorney General Austin Knudsen said in the release. “I’m proud of our prosecutors in the Attorney General’s Office who helped hold the perpetrator to account and ensured justice was served in this case.”
