MENTOR, Ohio– The former owner of a psychic studio in Mentor was indicted on 28 counts on Tuesday following a lengthy investigation.
Gina B. Miller of Gina’s Psychic Studio faces one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, five counts of aggravated theft, six counts of grand theft, two counts of theft, one count of identity theft, 10 counts of telecommunications fraud and three counts of securing writings by deception.
According to the Lake County Prosecutor’s Office, Miller stole more than $1.5 million from 11 people. When she was arrested last year, police said Miller would tell her victims that harm would come to their families if they didn’t pay her.
Court documents show investigators seized Louis Vuitton purses, iPhones and computers, as well as Rolex watches and other jewelry.
Miller’s bail was set at $150,000. She faces up to 34 years in prison, if convicted.
The Mentor Police Department’s investigation into Miller lasted a year and a half.
