Christopher Lemarque Miller—the man charged May 3 with attempting to rob the Bremer Bank on Cahill Ave.—pleaded not guilty in Dakota County District Court Tuesday morning.
Inver Grove Heights police apprehended the 27-year-old former Missouri State University football player just after 2 p.m. on May 2 after an employee of the bank provided a description matching Miller.
Miller lists himself as the CEO of clothing design business Christopher Lemarque on his LinkedIn page.
"My clothes are for your everyday average person with dreams and aspirations," the description states.
Miller also waived his right to a speedy trial on Tuesday morning—allowing Judge Shawn Moynihan to schedule a settlement conference for Feb. 27, 2013 and, if necessary, a jury trial for March 18.
The charge against Miller—simple robbery—is a felony and carries with it a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
