Carl Blake Miller, an Orinda man formerly in charge of a real estate investment group, pleaded not guilty today to nine felony counts against him, including embezzlement, forgery and filing false documents.
Miller is believed to have embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from clients of Geneva Real Estate Investments. There is believed to be more than 175 victims of Miller’s crimes.
Miller is also accused of taking $16,000 from Orinda’s Boy Scout Troop 327. Although Miller returned the money, the original taking of the money is still a felony crime.
Miller is due back in court on September 22.
