A Mennonite pastor who was convicted of helping a former Vermont woman flee the country rather than share custody of her child with her former same-sex partner has been ordered to prison.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York issued a mandate Monday upholding the conviction of Kenneth Miller, of Stuarts Draft, Virginia, for his role in helping Lisa Miller flee the country in 2009 with her daughter Isabella. The Millers are not related.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge William Sessions ordered Kenneth Miller to surrender to prison on March 1 to begin serving a 27-month prison sentence that had been delayed pending his appeal.

Lisa Miller and her daughter Isabella fled the country rather than share custody with her former Vermont civil union partner Janet Jenkins.
