Former Virgin Islands hospital CEO Rodney Miller faces a new criminal charge for allegedly attempting to submit a falsified Navy identification card as evidence during a trial at which he was convicted of hiding a bad-conduct discharge when he applied for his job.

Miller, 37, turned himself in to authorities March 11 and is free on bail. He is scheduled to enter a plea March 18. He continues to await trial on more serious allegations of misconduct, including grand larceny and embezzlement, during his 2002-07 stint as president and CEO of 123-bed Schneider Regional Medical Center, a government-run hospital on the island of St. Thomas.

Last year Miller was sentenced to probation and a $500 fine for misrepresenting his Navy background. According to prosecutors, he was given a bad-conduct discharge after pleading guilty to larceny and other charges to a court martial in 1995.

During the trial Miller's lawyer allegedly attempted to admit as evidence a Navy ID card showing Miller on active duty in 2002, according to an affidavit prosecutors filed to secure a warrant for his latest arrest. The judge declined to admit the card, and prosecutors obtained a subpoena to seize it.

Miller's attorney, William Glore, did not return a call requesting comment.
