A La Grande man is on trial beginning today, on six counts of sex abuse. 33 year old Michael Altherr-Miller is charged with three counts of felony first-degree sex abuse and three counts of third-degree sex abuse, which each are misdemeanors. Originally Altherr-Miller was jailed, but he posted $150,000 bail, which bought him his freedom… perhaps only temporarily. He was arrested originally following an investigation that began in January.
