A Lawrence County man who stored images of himself raping an 8-year-old girl on a computer tablet that he later sold at a flea market will spend 15 to 30 years in state prison for the sex acts. 44-year-old Donald Miller of New Castle was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty to child rape in November. He was sentenced earlier this month to 27 years in federal prison for the child pornography he created and stored on the tablet. A woman who bought the tablet from him at an Ohio flea market the day before Christmas 2013 discovered the images and notified authorities. Miller will serve both sentences concurrently in state prison.
