Gig Harbor scout leader gets 10 years for rape

TACOMA — A 61-year-old former Boy Scout leader was sentenced in Tacoma to 10 years in prison for child rape and molestation.

Price Nick Miller of Gig Harbor was charged in 2006, pleaded guilty in March in a plea deal with Pierce County prosecutors and was sentenced Monday in an emotional superior court hearing. One 18-year-old victim told the judge that Miller had made his life miserable.

Prosecutors say one of the victims was a family friend and Miller met the other through the Boy Scouts.

Miller read a statement in court saying he used horrible judgment and that he prays for his victims to cope.
