Conecuh County Jury Convicts Man On Rape And Sodomy Charges

Jack Wiley sounded confident and perhaps a bit cocky after arriving at the Conecuh County Courthouse to hear his fate.

"I think it's going excellent," said Wiley just before he slipped into the courthouse under security.

The trial lasted only two days, a case where prosecutors accused Wiley of raping and sodomizing his wife's two children; a 3-year old girl and a 17-year old boy.

"He's a pervert. They led a nomadic life across the country, living in tents in cars. It was a horrible life," said Conecuh County District Attorney Tommy Chapman.

During the trial Wiley maintained his innocence, saying 'he loved the kids like they were his own.'

"I'll talk to you when I'm released," said Wiley before the verdicts were read.

But Wiley's release never came. By a unanimous decision the jury convicted Jack Wiley on two counts of rape first degree and one count of sodomy first degree. He showed no emotions when the verdicts were announced but Theresa Crosby did.

"Thank you Jesus Christ," Crosby remembers thinking when the guilty verdicts came down.

Crosby is now the foster mother of the little girl.

"She is so young and she will have a life that's already 100% better than what she had," said Crosby. Crosby believes the girl will eventually be adopted out.

Chapman, meantime, believes it was the medical testimony from a doctor that sealed Wiley's fate.

"The medical testimony of the doctor about the injuries of the 3-year old child was critical. That brought it home," said Chapman.

Wiley's Mobile attorney couldn't agree more.  The verdicts disappointed Dennis Knizley but he was not surprised.

"It made my job a lot more difficult. The child was injured by somebody," Knizley said.

Jack Wiley's wife, 42-year old Glenna Wiley is already serving time in prison after pleading guilty to similar charges earlier this year.

Bryan: "Are you nervous?"

Jack Wiley: "Not really."

Wiley himself is about to join his wife in prison. He could get anywhere from 10 years to life. Chapman  says this is by far the worst sexual abuse case he's ever prosecuted in 30 years of law practice.

"Because of the injuries to the 3-year old child. The traumatic injuries and it affected her," Chapman said.

As of tonight, Jack Wiley is in the Conecuh County jail on suicide watch. Wiley's sentencing is tentatively set for December 13th.

The teenage boy's future is a little uncertain. WSFA 12 News has learned he is in a group home in the River Region.

No word if Wiley's attorney will appeal.
