Less than a week after the arrest of Montreal billionaire Robert Miller on sex charges, police have arrested a 67-year-old woman from his entourage.In a press release, Montreal police said Teresita Fuentes was arrested Tuesday on a prostitution-related offence.

Miller, founder of the company Future Electronics, was arrested on Thursday at his Westmount home to face sex charges involving 10 complainants, many of whom were minors when the alleged offences took place.

The 80-year-old is facing a total of 21 charges including sexual assault, sexual interference and enticing a person to commit prostitution.

Miller stepped down as chairman and CEO of global electronics distributor Future Electronics in February 2023, saying he would focus on protecting his reputation amid reports by CBC and Radio-Canada that he allegedly gave young women cash, trips and extravagant gifts in exchange for sex.In addition to the criminal charges, Miller has been in court defending civil suits connected with the allegations.
