Man sentenced to life for child molestation

  • Follow Crime & courts

Life imprisonment plus 40 years was handed down as punishment Thursday to a man convicted of child molestation.

An indictment said Wilce Goetz committed an unknown number of sex acts with a child younger than 16 between Jan. 8 and May 21, 2010. He was also accused of touching the girl in a lewd manner.

A jury convicted him Thurs­day of the charges. Goetz was sentenced to life for aggravated child molestation, followed by consecutive sentences of 20 years for two counts of child molestation.

I do not know why I ask

I do not know why I ask because the AC always puts half a story out there for readers did this happen in RC or in Africa? Pretty poor details.

There is a Wilce Goetz on

There is a Wilce Goetz on myspace that hails from Augusta. The name is not very common, I assume it's the same guy.

My question, when will Scott Dean's case be coming up?

Dr. Bailey, You are

Dr. Bailey,

You are dangerous: you ask too many questions which are unrelated to "American Idol."

IF, this is an Augusta Goetz,

IF, this is an Augusta Goetz, it is possible that his family is fairly well known, thus the sketchy coverage. The AC tends to do that; they flat shut down discussion of the Weinberger case on the forums.

Clearly Vito45 doesn't

Clearly Vito45 doesn't remember how vile and savage the comments were in the forums that polluted the news articles reporting the Weinberger case. If the people making comments about their fellow men and women in the news can't be trusted to restrain themselves and be at least minimally civil and appropriate, then, sadly, someone more socially responsible and civilized must do it for them.

As for the lamentable and sickening Mr. Geotz, his life is over even if he survives being in prison for decades, just as it should be.

Mr. Goetz is not an immigrant

Mr. Goetz is not an immigrant and his family is not fairly well known, the case involves kids that's why this is all you got. He is just a regular American man that [filtered word]ed up big time and now he must pay. Justice has been served.
