3/13/2018 - OKC, OK -- An Oklahoma City woman, who ran a home pet healthcare business, has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to prison for prostituting a juvenile and concealing stolen property.
27-year-old Shuntoya May Miller was charged back in May of 2016 with human trafficking and aiding and abetting prostitution. Miller's co-defendant, Jame Fabiola Reyes, 18, was initially charged with human trafficking and offering to engage in prostitution - but her charges were all dismissed in Aug. of 2016. JohnTV assumes that Reyes' charges were dropped in exchange for her cooperation in prosecuting Miller.
In March of this year, Miller worked out a plea deal with the Oklahoma County District Attorney's office. In exchange for her guilty plea, Miller's human trafficking charge was reduced to pandering. Miller was sentenced to 10-years in prison and 10-years probation. In addition, Miller received 630 days of credit for time served. Miller was also ordered to pay a $100 fine, $85 VCA, $80 DA Fee, $150 DNA Fee and court costs.
Before you go thinking District Attorney David Prater did right by the people of Oklahoma County, I feel obligated to point out a couple of things; The reduction of the original charge from human trafficking to pandering is significant. While a human trafficking conviction has a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 15-years (when involving a minor, as in this case) and carries up to life, a pandering conviction comes with as little as 2-years in prison and caps out at 20-years. Human trafficking is considered a violent crime and offenders must serve at least 85% of their time - pandering offenders do not. Miller may actually only serve an additional couple of years before she is released. A human trafficking conviction means a defendant must register as a sex offender - something a pandering defendant does not have to do.
Additionally, according to the Oklahoma statute title 21, Chapter 42, Section 1081; Miller's fine should have been no less than $1,000 (she was only sentenced to 10% of that). So, in reality, Miller will most likely walk out of prison in just a couple of years and not even have to register as a sex offender, even though Miller willfully sold a juvenile for commercial sex.
As if that wasn't enough to question what is starting to look like a slap on the wrist for Miller by DA Prater's office, Miller's conviction was actually combined with another felony case in Oklahoma County she pleaded guilty to. In June of 2016 Miller was charged with two counts of concealing stolen property. Miller received 10-years in prison on that case and is being allowed to serve her time concurrently with her pimping conviction. And, we're not done yet - the gifts just keep on coming for child pimp Miller... Also as part of her plea deal, a 2014 felony case for trafficking cocaine and possession of an offensive weapon while committing a felony was dismissed.
As previously reported by JohnTV, 27-year-old Shuntoya May Miller was arrested in May of 2016 after undercover officers with the Oklahoma City police department's Vice Unit rescued Miller's young victim, during a prostitution sting.
According to court documents, on May 11, 2016 an undercover officer responded to a suspected ad for prostitution appearing on Backpage.com (actual ad below)...
The officer was instructed to go to room 239 of the Budget Inn on NW 39th Expressway near N. Tulsa Ave.
When the undercover officer entered the motel room he was greeted by Reyes and another female.
The females negotiated a rate of $200 to have sexual intercourse with the undercover officer. The officer then gave the takedown signal and additional officers entered the motel room and took the two women into custody.
While being processed it was learned that the unnamed female was a juvenile.
Officers also located Miller, sitting in a silver Kia SUV, and detained her after it appeared she was acting as a lookout for Reyes and the younger girl.
Officers then learned that Miller had rented the motel Reyes and the juvenile were prostituting out of and was to receive proceeds from the women's prostitution efforts.
Reyes and Miller were taken into custody and transported to the Oklahoma County Jail.
Reyes was booked into jail on complaints of human trafficking, offering to engage in prostitution and felony computer crimes. Miller was booked into jail on complaints of human trafficking, aiding and abetting prostitution, pandering and felony computer crimes.
Jail paperwork shows Miller gave a home address in the 1100 block of NE 14th in OKC, OK 73111.
JohnTV was able to uncover that Miller was leading a double life - child trafficker by night and seemingly legitimate small business owner and animal advocate by day.
Public records revealed to JohnTV that Miller, using her married last name "Johnson", in 2014 founded JBPRS. According to their now deleted website, JBPRS provides "quality home healthcare for pets who are in the process of recovering from injury or illness, and or needing assistance to enhance their physical and nutritional health ... JBPRS is the only company in the United States that offers home health care and hospice for animals..."
Miller, promoted herself as a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) and a member of the Oklahoma Association for Home Care and Hospice with over 10 years of experience in the rehabilitation of small animals."
Miller's social media contained several photos of her posing with individuals while attending events related to her JBPRS efforts.
Public records also reveal that in 2014 Miller married local felon Darrius Lavelle Johnson. Johnson was Miller's co-defendant in her 2014 trafficking and gun case and her 2016 stolen property case.
On July 20, 2016 Miller's husband, Darrius Johnson pleaded guilty to felony trafficking of cocaine and possession of a firearm after former conviction. Johnson was sentenced to 10-years in prison.
Johnson's prior criminal convictions include, drug dealing, possession of CDS and possession of criminal proceeds.
