ROCK SPRINGS — Allan Wilson, a Green River city councilman, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday morning in circuit court. Wilson’s case will now be bound over to district court at a date yet to be set.
He was arrested in Sweetwater County in January and charged with second-degree sexual abuse of a minor.
According to the redacted affidavit filed in the Rock Springs Circuit Court, Sweetwater County Detective Michelle Hall interviewed the alleged victim after his parents reported “concerning photos” on his Snapchat account. When the parents questioned the boy, he revealed the alleged abuse.
The boy told investigators Wilson allegedly inappropriately touched him in 2011 in a camper at a cabin property located close to Kemmerer. He also accused Wilson of inappropriately touching him in 2013 while driving through Green River, according to court documents.
Wilson is also charged with alleged first-degree sexual abuse of a minor in Lincoln County.
