County: Clark

Charges: Misdemeanor, Felony Non-CTA
Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Edward Miley

Case Updates: 1 update(s) available

Las Vegas attorney Edward Miley is facing additional charges after a domestic violence incident last week.

Miley is accused of choking the family dog and slamming it against a mirror and hitting his wife, Judge Stefany Miley, when she tried to intervene.

The District Attorney is charging him with five counts of battery domestic violence, one count of cruelty to animals and one count of child abuse and neglect since their children saw the whole incident.

The dog had to be euthanized.


Case Updates

District Judge Stefany Miley is suing attorney Edward Miley for divorce.

According to a copy of her Nov. 13 complaint, the judge says she and her husband of 12 years “have become incompatible to the degree that it is impossible for them to continue to live together in a harmonious marital relationship.”

The marriage fell apart Oct. 1 in what authorities and the judge alleged was a violent confrontation in front of their two young sons that led to Edward Miley’s arrest.

Several days later the district attorney’s office filed a criminal complaint against the lawyer, charging him with felony child abuse and neglect, misdemeanor domestic violence and misdemeanor cruelty to animals. The family’s cocker spaniel was injured during the confrontation, which Stefany Miley alleged was fueled by her husband’s heavy drinking.

Edward Miley has since spent time at a rehab center and is set to be arraigned on the criminal charges in Las Vegas Justice Court on Tuesday.

Although the marriage is headed for divorce, cooler heads appear to be prevailing in the rocky relationship.

Judge Miley is seeking primary custody of the couple’s sons, but at a closed hearing in Family Court last week, an arrangement was worked out to allow both parents to temporarily share custody.

Also, a protective order barring Miley’s husband from setting foot in the Regional Justice Center, where she sits on the bench, has been lifted, allowing the lawyer to go back to practicing his livelihood. The judge is seeking alimony and child support, the complaint says.
