ROGER MILLS SENTENCED TO 10 YEARS IN PRISON FOR ASSAULTING HIS WIFE AND SISTER

Roger Mills (age 68) of Kingston was charged by Roane County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Greg Scalf with aggravated assault for a domestic situation involving Mills’ wife, Tracey Mills, on August 21, 2020. Mills strangled his wife and would not let her leave their house in Kingston, beating her with a hammer on her knees and ankles. After making bond he later assaulted his sister, Sherry Mills, trying to strangle her as well on March 9, 2022. RCSO Investigator John Mayes also charged Roger Mills with aggravated assault.
The cases were scheduled for trial in March 2024, but Mills ended up pleading to both aggravated assault charges.
A sentencing hearing was held on Monday where ADA Jonathan Edwards argued for five years on both cases involving the wife and sister, asking the Court to impose the full five years and to run the sentences consecutively. Edwards told the Court to “ignore the fact that the defendant is older, in this case almost 69 years old, and impose the longer sentence because of the heinous and personal nature of both attacks, instances of strangulation that exhibited uncontrolled anger and violence.”
Roane County Criminal Court Judge Jeff Wicks agreed and ran the two sentences one after the other for an effective prison sentence of ten years. The District Attorneys Office had moved to revoke Mills’ initial bond that he made and was released upon after the second attack in March of 2022. Mills has been in continuous custody since that time and will now be transported to prison.
