MARIETTA, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - A Kennesaw buisnessman has been sentenced to prison after being found guilty of molesting two young female relatives..
After a weeklong trial, a Cobb County jury convicted 60-year-old Andrew Wing on Friday of molesting two relatives between 2012 and 2015.
According to the Cobb County District Attorney, police were first alerted when the mother of a 10-year-old girl witnessed the girl grabbing Wing's genitals.
After being scolded for the action, the young girl told her mother "but he does that to me."
A forensic interview of the girl and an 8-year-old confirmed that Wing had touched their genitals multiple times, saying that it was a "tickling game" after their baths.
“This trial demonstrated the ugly truth about sexual abuse: Most often children are abused by someone they love who exploits their position of trust in a child’s life,” said ADA Katie Gropper, of the Special Victims Unit. “This verdict demonstrates that we no longer live in a society where children who are abused by family members have to suffer in the darkness of silence.”
A judge sentenced Wing to 30 years, with 10 to be served in custody.
