Shoshone man receives 130 years for child sexual exploitation conviction

By  | 

SHOSHONE, Id. ( KMVT/KSVT ) A federal judge has handed down the maximum 130-year sentence to a Shoshone man convicted of sexually exploiting an 8-year old girl.

Fifty-four-year old William Roger Wilkinson was convicted on three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts related to possession of child pornography.

Wilkinson was sentenced to the maximum on each charge, and ordered to pay over 155-thousand dollars in fines.

Wilkinson was convicted of the charges after images were found on his computers showing him engaging in sexually explicit conduct with a then eight-year-old girl.

The victim's mother thanked those who helped with the prosecution in a public Facebook post, saying Wilkinson "…will never see the light of day again."
