Chad Miller

A Jefferson City man pleads guilty to charges related to exposing his girlfriend’s infant child to unsafe conditions.

Chad Miller, 34, pleaded down to child endangerment and possession of a controlled substance this week.  He’ll be sentenced in August.

Miller’s girlfriend, Candice Shockley, previously pleaded guilty to the same charges and was sentenced to five years supervised probation.

The charges stem from a state investigation into the living conditions of the couple’s home in 2019.
