Man guilty of sex abuse in Wicomico County case

by DrewLUD


A Wicomico County jury found a man guilty of sexual abuse Wednesday in a case involving explicit recordings of a child.

The Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office said 50-year-old Michael Villa has been convicted of sexual abuse of a minor along with three counts of conducting visual surveillance in a private place with prurient intent, meaning sexual in nature.

The Salisbury Police Department received reports in December 2019 of a man, later identified as Villa, acting suspiciously at local businesses, according to prosecutors.
