He said he was having bondage sex with his girlfriend. She said he manhandled her, hitting and choking her and it was not consensual. The judge said the defendant, Billy Floyd Miller, will serve a month in bondage at Warren County Jail.
Miller, entered a guilty plea before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to the charge of domestic assault and was directed to serve 30 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence, enter the batterer intervention program and get mental health treatment. He had originally been charged with felony assault and could have faced up to six years in prison.
The victim told McMinnville policeman Chris Odom that Miller came home after drinking and knocked her down, placing a 3-inch knife blade to her neck, telling her he was going to slash her throat. He then hit her in the forehead, leaving a cut.
“She was finally able to get up and run out the side door,” Odom reported of the incident. “He ran after her and grabbed her by the hair on the back of her head in an attempt to stop her.”
The victim was running back up to her apartment at the time when Odom arrived to investigate the domestic disturbance.
“He said he and his girlfriend were having sex involving some kind of bondage,” Odom said of the suspect’s claim, noting the victim had a different story. “She denied they were having any kind of bondage sex and Mr. Miller was lying.”
