In the case, which did not involve his work in government, Miller and his Assembly aide and onetime law partner, Jay Adolf, were charged with cheating legal clients out of some of the profits from investments in cooperative apartments They acknowledged receiving a total of about $250,000 in three deals, but denied defrauding clients The jury convicted each defendant of six charges of fraud, one of conspiracy and one of using an assumed name, all involving one scheme to secretly buy and resell eight apartments in a Brooklyn building The jury found that they had deprived their clients of the right to buy the apartments and receive the profits

The conviction, however, was later overturned on appeal6
