Franklin County Man Indicted on More Charges After Shooting Himself

Franklin Co., VA - A Franklin County man already indicted on 50 counts of possessing child pornography has now been indicted on a firearms charge after he accidentally shot himself.

As deputies moved in to arrest Michael Miles, 60, on May 9, a deputy encountered him as he tried to leave his home through a basement door.

Authorities say a rifle that Miles was carrying went off hitting him in the face.

On Monday, a Franklin County grand jury indicted him on one charge of recklessly handling a firearm.
