Wilson enters guilty plea
December 12, 2018
Green River City Councilman Allan Wilson entered a guilty plea to sexual abuse Monday morning.
Wilson was scheduled for a motion hearing Monday at 11 a.m., but the hearing became a change of plea hearing. Wilson plead guilty to the charge of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree. The other charges against him will be dismissed at disposition. A pre-sentence investigation was ordered Monday and will be completed in approximately three months. The disposition will occur afterward.He will receive five year supervised probation pursuant to a deferral under W.S. 7-13-301. According to a press release from the Sweetwater County Attorney's Office, he plead guilty to an incident that occurred in Sweetwater County in 2013. Wilson will receive the deferred sentence if he provides a factual basis for the charge while under oath, admitting to the allegations.
