Prosecutor Miller tapped as U.S. attorney for central Illinois

September 11, 2001

Jan P. Miller, a federal prosecutor in Maryland since 1989, was picked yesterday to become the next U.S. attorney for central Illinois.

Miller, 41, an assistant U.S. attorney who has handled drug, child pornography and government corruption cases, was selected by Illinois Republican Sen. Peter Fitzgerald, who conducted a nationwide search to try to ensure political impartiality. Fitzgerald said he was sending Miller's name to president Bush, who would make the formal nomination.

Miller, who most recently has worked in the Greenbelt office of the Maryland U.S. attorney's office, attended the University of North Carolina and received his law degree from Harvard University. He is married and has two children.
