Jason Allen Miller sentenced to life for running over MHP trooper.

(Helena) Jason Allen Miller was recently sentenced to life without parole for deliberate homicide after he was found guilty in April for running over and seriously injuring Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Lewis Johnson.

Johnson, originally from Chester, “sustained injuries including a punctured lung, damaged liver, head injury, broken ribs, broken arm, broken leg and severe spinal trauma” according to the families fundraising page, which they started in an apparent effort to offset medical costs.

Miller was also convicted on charges of criminal endangerment, criminal mischief, criminal possession of dangerous drugs, and aggravated kidnapping, which amounts to an additional 25 years imprisonment besides his life sentence.

Before this incident, Trooper Johnson had been with the MHP for eight years.
