A former Trenton police officer was placed on probation after pleading guilty to statutory rape of a 15-year old girl in Grundy County.
Michael Wilson was employed as a officer in Trenton when he was accused of having sexual relations with the teenage girl at his home. Authorities say Wilson knew the girl’s age.
Wilson was sentenced to 7 years in prison, with that term being suspended. He will serve 120 days in the Department of Corrections where he will be placed in the sexual offender’s unit.
Wilson was terminated by the City of Trenton when he was charged last fall. He had been employed by the City for two years.
