Former Centre County DA won’t face opposition to getting law license back

Local News

CENTRE COUNTY, PA (WTAJ) — Former Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller is one step closer to getting her law license reinstated. 

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court suspended Parks Miller’s law license in Feb. 14, 2019, the culmination of disciplinary proceedings initiated by allegations the attorney violated established rules of conduct. Parks Miller ultimately admitted ex parte communications about cases with two county judges and creating a fake Facebook profile to spy on defendants. 

Parks Miller’s suspension was to be for one year and a day but her bid to have it reinstated in 2020 was thwarted by allegations she violated grand jury secrecy provisions. 

A filing this past week before the Disciplinary Board indicated the Office of Disciplinary Counsel does not oppose reinstatement of Parks Miller’s law license, according to the Board’s website. 

Parks Miller served two terms as Centre County District Attorney before losing to current District Attorney Bernie Cantorna, who defeated her in the 2017 primary election.
