Former KC builder F. Jeffrey Miller ordered back to prison for violating terms of release

Former Kansas City builder F. Jeffrey Miller has been sentenced to an additional three years in federal prison because he violated the terms of his supervised release, prosecutors announced Monday.

U.S. District Judge Julie A. Robinson ruled earlier that he had operated a fraudulent real estate business after serving a 72-month prison term for mortgage fraud.

Miller, 53, used his son’s college fund to set up a company that purchased homes at Jackson County tax sales and sold them to poor buyers without making the repairs he promised, Robinson found.

Miller also told his probation officer that he worked for the company as a laborer, even though he controlled its finances and operations, in violation of his probation conditions.
