Nicholas V. Miller appears in Juneau Superior Court on Thursday.

A Juneau man is scheduled to stand trial in May on 14 felony counts of possessing and distributing child pornography.

Nicholas V. Miller, 38, who was indicted last month, made his first appearance in Juneau Superior Court on Thursday and pleaded not guilty to five counts of possession and nine counts of distributing the illegal images.

His lawyer, defense attorney Julie Willoughby, entered the pleas on his behalf and requested a jury trial.

Judge Louis Menendez, filling in for Judge Philip Pallenberg who is assigned to the case, scheduled the trial to begin on May 20.

Prosecutors say law enforcement officers seized approximately 1,000 images and videos depicting child sexual exploitation from his computer and related digital items at his home in July 2012. The seizure was result of a four-to-five month long investigation by several agencies.

The case is being prosecuted by Marika Athens, the statewide cyber crimes prosecutor with the Office of Special Prosecutions and Appeals in Anchorage.

Miller was previously released on bail, and he is next scheduled to appear in court for an omnibus hearing on April 8.
