Ga. magician sentenced on porn charges

  • Follow Crime & courts

ATLANTA  — A former magician and one-time church youth counselor was sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to stalking young boys in public restrooms at metro Atlanta department stores and secretly taping them.

Jeffrey Alan Wasley, a 39-year-old Kennesaw man once known by the stage name "Magic Jeff," was sentenced in a brief court hearing Wednesday morning. He was also sentenced to a lifetime in supervised release.

Prosecutors say Wasley would target children as young as 4 in stores such as Target and Walmart by waiting for them to enter a restroom without an adult. He would often offer to help them and then videotape them when they used the bathroom, according to the indictment.

Wasley was apprehended in July 2008 after two brothers aged 5 and 7 reported Wasley's activity in a suburban Atlanta Target to their mother, who in turn notified store security.

He'll be waving his magic

He'll be waving his magic wand in prison, all right.

But had that happened to my son, I wouldn't have notified store security. I would have gone after him. Then I would've notified store security. As in, "Hey, by the way, there's a dead pervert over there."

Do not let your children go

Do not let your children go out of your sight, even when going to a public restroom. Who knows what pervert is lurking?
