WHEELING, W.Va. - A Wheeling man pled guilty to sexually abusing a 4-year-old child and was sentenced to 5-25 years in the state penitentiary Thursday.
Mark Wise, 52, was arrested in March 2013 for having sexual relations with a then 4-year-old child at his home in May 2013.
According to court documents, the girl revealed the alleged sex abuse to an adult family member, using childlike language to describe the sexual encounter.
The girl underwent an examination at Ohio Valley Medical Center.
Wise maintained his innocence, but said he understood a young girl was making the allegations and if convicted he could face a lengthy time in jail.
He must register as a sex offender for life.
