He was sentenced to a minimum of approximately 126 years in prison. The evidence at trial showed that Wilson engaged in a variety of acts of child molestation against the two victims, including raping an elementary school-aged child at least four times. Wilson forced the same child to watch pornography. Upon the disclosure of abuse from the victims, the Monroe Police Department immediately launched a thorough investigation. Upon his conviction, the Defendant was sentenced to four consecutive sentences of 365-498 months of active time in the North Carolina Division of Adult Correction. He also receive two additional consecutive sentences of 25-39 months. Wilson is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his natural life and enroll in satellite-based monitoring. “I would like to commend the hard work of Assistant District Attorneys Craig Principe and Mary Beth Usher that resulted in this conviction and the courage of the victims to testify,” said District Attorney Trey Robison. “I am grateful as well for the hard work of the Monroe Police Department, especially Sergeant Nick Brummer, which allowed us to get this predator off our streets. Prosecuting crimes against children—our most vulnerable victims—is and always has been a priority for my office.”

KnowBe4 Scam Of The Week: Equifax Phishing Attacks Cyber criminals have stolen 143 million credit records in the recent hacking scandal at big-three credit bureau, Equifax. At this point you have to assume that the bad guys have highly personal information that they can use to trick you. You need to watch out for the following things: • Phishing emails that claim to be from Equifax where you can check if your data was compromised • Phishing emails that claim there is a problem with a credit card, your credit record, or other personal financial information • Calls from scammers that claim they are from your bank or credit union • Fraudulent charges on any credit card because your identity was stolen Here are 5 things you can do to prevent identity theft: • First sign up for credit monitoring (there are many companies providing that service including Equifax but we cannot recommend that) • Next freeze your credit files at the three major credit bureaus Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Remember that generally it is not possible to sign up for credit monitoring services after a freeze is in place. Advice for how to file a freeze is available here on a state-by-state basis: http://consumersunion.org/research/security-freeze/ • Check your credit reports via the free annualcreditreport.com • Check your bank and credit card statements for any unauthorized activity Always remember: "When in doubt, throw it out!"
