Miller said he has taken in wanted persons to the police since he was charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice six years ago.

Embattled pastor Merrick 'Al' Miller is to hold a press conference next week to provide more answers about his just ended criminal case in which he was convicted and fined for attempting to pervert the course of Justice.

The charges arose from an incident in 2010 when he was found transporting then fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke allegedly to the United States Embassy in Kingston.

Speaking on RJR’s Hotline, Miller said his conviction and sentence have not deterred him, adding that he will assist more wanted persons to surrender if the need arises.

After Miller’s sentencing Thursday, Bishop Herro Blair said pastors need to rethink how they help the police.

Blair's statement has prompted the police commissioner to request a meeting with him to discuss the issue.

However, Blair said he is not sure how many pastors will be in attendance at that meeting.
