Miller Jury Ends 8th Day

October 30, 1985

The jury in the Richard W. Miller spy case in Los Angeles federal court completed its eighth day of deliberations Tuesday without reaching a verdict.

Jurors had asked last week for the testimony of three witnesses to be reread to them by a court stenographer, a process that took more than three days to complete. The testimony repeated for the jury was from Armand Mauss, a defense expert on the Mormon religion; Gary G. Auer, Miller's former boss on the FBI's Soviet counterintelligence squad in Los Angeles, and John Hunt, a former FBI counterintelligence agent.

Miller, 48, the first FBI agent ever charged with espionage, faces a possible life prison sentence if convicted of passing secret documents vital to U.S. defense to the Soviet Union.
