Early life and career

Allegation of rape
On November 17, 2017, actress Aurora Perrineau (daughter of actor Harold Perrineau) filed a police report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department alleging Miller, then age 35, had raped her in 2012 when she was age 17. Miller has denied the accusation. On August 10, 2018, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office after an investigation in response to the police report of Perrineau formally declined to file charges against Miller by reason of the statute of limitations for prosecution of statutory rape had passed, and further declined prosecution for rape on any other ground due to "inconsistencies which cannot be overcome" and the delay for reporting the case.
