— A former Oklahoma City Thunder public address announcer faces six additional felony charges of sexually assaulting two girls.


James Alan Miller, 41, of Harrah, was charged Tuesday in Pontotoc County District Court with six counts of child sexual abuse. Miller was arrested after a court appearance Tuesday. His bail is set at $100,000.

The girls told a sheriff's department investigator the abuse occurred repeatedly from 2000 to 2007, when Miller lived north of Ada, according to a court affidavit.

District Attorney Chris Ross said the girls are young women now who came forward when they suspected Miller was sexually abusing another child.

Ross said findings in their investigation will be forwarded to Murray County authorities because the young women claim they also were sexually abused by Miller when he lived in Sulphur.

Miller is charged in Oklahoma County District Court with two felony counts of lewd acts with a child under 16.

Miller, a teacher and tennis coach at Harrah High School who was placed on administrative leave from the school, was removed from his duties as the Thunder's announcer May 10, one week before charges were filed against him in Oklahoma County.
