Sex contract could be pivotal in case against Jeffersonville man charged with molesting teenage girl
Brandin Wilson, 33, walked into a Jeffersonville courtroom Thursday shackled at the wrist and feet.
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- Brandin Wilson, 33, walked into a Jeffersonville courtroom Thursday shackled at the wrist and feet.
He had no words for reports, though he pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors say Wilson wrote out sexual stipulations for weekly acts with the 13-year-old girl.
"For a grown man to locate a child and start molesting that child, and then reduce that to writing and make the child sign that ... it was both heartbreaking and infuriating," said Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull.
Wilson periodically provided for her and consequences for backing out of the deal.
"I was a very uncomfortable from the very beginning with my (relative) and him," said a relative of the girl, who we aren't identifying to protect the victim's identity. "There were things said that just didn't sound right."
It all came to light after the last act, which police say took place Saturday in a van at Duffy's Landing. Wilson and the girl were reportedly gone for hours, and his wife found the sex contract in his wallet.
"This is not her fault," the victim's relative said. "This is nothing she created, and it's not her fault, and she needs to know she is so loved."
The teen told detectives they'd been having sex for years.
"At this point and time, we have no discovery ... no evidence that's been presented to us," said defense attorney Jennifer Culotta.
Wilson only faces two sex abuse charges, making that contract dated Feb., 13 2017 crucial.
The challenge with prosecuting child molestation cases is the victim trying to produce the dates of these offenses," Mull said. "Most times, they can't remember."
Wilson was arrested for sexual misconduct with a child in 2002. He was 18 at the time, and police say the victim was 14.
But he cut a deal to stay away from her and the state dismissed the case.
