Matthew Wheeler - Repeat Sex Offender - Enabling Mother Believes it's "Unfair"

  • Sexual Abuse-1st Degree
  • Conviction Date: 5/11/2007
  • Age at conviction: 34
  • Victim's Age: 5

A level three sex offender who violated his probation four times is now going to state prison. Matthew Wheeler will spend the next six years in prison. Judge Joseph Valentino ruled he violated his probation after erotic images of little girls were found on his computer and after he failed to try to get a job.

"He's a level three sex offender which is the highest risk offender. And now he's going to be in state prison so I think the community can feel safe tonight that he's not on the streets of Rochester," said Kristina Karle, Assistant District Attorney.

Wheeler's mother called News 10NBC and said her son is getting railroaded. She also said her son's sentence is unfair.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"
