William Miller was arrested for alleged violation of the Sex Offender Registration Act after an investigation was concluded today into reports of him on Facebook.

Miller was taken into custody and is being held in the Jefferson County Jail awaiting the formal filing of charges and setting of bail.

He was convicted in 2006 in Jefferson County of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a 13-year-old victim. Miller was 32 at the time of the sexual contact.

In January he was convicted of failing to report annually as a registered offender and was sentenced to 30 months probation.
