A local 74-year-old man will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for multiple child sex crimes.
Wiley Leslie Towers was sentenced to 25 years in prison and sex offender registration after he pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child ranging from 2015-17.
He was arrested in January for three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, one count of indecency with a child and the continuous sexual abuse of a child under 14. His bonds were set at $300,000.
On March 22, he reached a plea bargain with the district attorney’s office, resulting in his sentence of 25 years. The victim’s name, age and gender are being withheld to protect the child’s identity.
