Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller, who was elected as Centre County’s first female District Attorney in 2009, announced her bid for re-election via a press release issued Monday.
“I plan to build on our proven record of successful, smart prosecutions,” Miller said in the press release. “While I am proud of the progress that has been made, there is much work left to do. While the office is dramatically different than before, I promise to continue to strive for excellence in fighting crime and serving victims every single day.”
Parks Miller, of Lewistown, was a former prosecutor and held the position of First Assistant District Attorney of Clearfield County before being sworn into the Centre County District Attorney’s office on Jan. 4, 2010, according to the release.
During her years as a prosecutor, Parks Miller successfully prosecuted a wide variety of criminal cases including homicide cases, sex crimes, burglary, property crimes, assault cases and drug offenses, according to the release.
Parks Miller also instituted a Centre County Child Abuse Protocol within weeks of taking office in 2009, which created a unified approach to the handling of child sexual and physical abuse cases in the area, according to the release.
