Editor's note: Due to the graphic nature of these particular cases and a need to protect the victim's identity, even the redacted court documents supporting the charges will not be published.

Green River City Councilman Allan Wilson is in the Sweetwater County Detention Center awaiting official charges.

He was arrested in Sweetwater County for a charge stemming out of Lincoln County and one charge in Sweetwater County.

A detention officer confirmed that Wilson is in the Sweetwater County Detention Center, even though his name doesn't appear on the jail roster.

According to Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office detective and public information officer Dick Blust Jr., names are omitted from the jail roster if the inmate is a juvenile or if they have been charged with a felony sexual-assault related charge. He said in a sexual-assault related case, the name will not appear on the jail roster until the person is bound over to Third District Court.

A redacted court document obtained from the Circuit Court in Lincoln County, states that A.W. is waiting to be charged with first-degree sexual abuse of a minor. The charge stems from an incident that happened sometime between April 29-Sept.1 of 2011. The charge is for alleged inflicted sexual intrusion on someone less than 18 years old. The maximum penalty for this charge is 50 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.

A circuit court employee at the Rock Springs Circuit Court office confirmed Allan Wilson does have charges filed against him in that court.

A redacted court document obtained from the Circuit Court in Rock Springs, states A.D.W., is waiting to be charged with second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. The charge stems from an incident that happened sometime between late spring and the summer of 2013. The charge is for engaging in alleged sexual conduct with a person under the age of 13. The maximum penalty is 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.

His initial appearance hearing is scheduled to take place in the Rock Springs Circuit Court on Jan. 23 at 10 a.m. At this point, the court is still trying to determine if the hearing will be "Sealed." According to court documents, "Cases involving sexual-assault charges shall be marked 'sealed' in the court's docket management system until such time as the case is bound over to District Court."
