DALE COUNTY - The city of Daleville in disbelief as news that a local official has been arrested on sex charges. 61 year-old Councilman Marvin Wise is being charged with rape in the second degree, sodomy in the second degree, two counts of child abuse in the second degree and enticing a child."What happens next I believe, November 2nd at 1:30 is a preliminary hearing where the evidence will be tested in probable cause and put in front of a grand jury," said David Harrison, defense lawyer for Wise.
During today's hearing District Attorney Kirke Adams says the state does not see a flight risk since Wise had no previous criminal history. The state asked for a bond to be set with the condition that Wise could not have any contact with the victim or other children.
Harrison asked that a lower bond than the state requested be set and said that Wise would not be residing at his home.
Bond for Wise was set at $60,000, $20,000 for each felony and $10,000 for each misdemeanor.
"We do expect more charges to be forthcoming and more arrests to be made," said Daleville Public Safety Captain Allen Hendrickson.
