UPDATE: Wheeling Man Accused of Sexual Abuse Sentenced to Prison

A Wheeling man accused of sexual abuse by a parent or guardian will spend the next 5-25 years in prison.
On Thursday, 53-year-old Mark Douglas Wise entered an Alford plea in front of Judge James Mazzone.
In entering an Alford plea, the defendant admits that the evidence the prosecution has would be likely to persuade a judge or jury to find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Wise was charged with the crime in 2013 after allegedly sexually abusing a four-year-old female.
After serving his sentence, Wise will be on supervised release for the 25 years. He will also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
