No Retrial for Former Teacher Accused of Molesting a Girl

Updated 1 year ago

All charges have been dismissed against a former Searsport music teacher accused of molesting a seventh grade girl. William Wiley had been sentenced to three years in jail after being found guilty of sexually abusing the girl over a six month period in 2004. In his appeal Wiley argued he had not been advised of his miranda rights prior to interrogations, and his statements made before and after his arrest were involuntary. The Supreme Court agreed with Wiley. The district attorney’s office has decided not to retry Wiley.
