District Court Hearing

Wyle Ivie entered a “not guilty” plea to the felony charge at Thursday’s arraignment hearing in District Court. According to the affidavit of probable cause, Ivie was arrested and charged with Sexual Abuse of a Minor in the Second Degree for allegedly having sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl on January 1st. The juvenile had run away from home and was located by law enforcement at Ivie’s residence during the early morning hours of New Year’s Day.

District Court Judge John Fenn said that the date for the pretrial conference and trial would be set at a later time. The charge of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in the Second Degree is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.


  1. This state is to lenient on sex offenders. This guys gonna get 1-3 years suspended with 4 years probation. He will be having sex with minors in less than a year. Pathetic.

    • Let’s get the story straight here.
      1. He lives with his parents.
      2. She was never found at there house on New Years Eve or New Years Day.
      3. The time she ran away was a couple weeks after new years.
      4. They searched his parents house the day she ran away and she was not there.
      5. She was found at another man’s house in Woodlands park the day she ran away.
      6. There is proof shes been lying about her age to every man she has slept with.
      7. In the original report she was found at his parents house the day he was arrested. Also false. His parents were home that day also.
      Sounds to me that alot of people need to get there facts straight instead of saying and believing everything they here.
      I smell a law suit coming on..

      • I was in jail with Wylie Ivie for some six months & observed his demeanor & heard his line of defense, & that little punk kid was the most belligerent, arrogant little piece of work I’d ever come across in my entire life. How DARE you defend him, unless you’re Wylie himself or his parents? His parents REFUSED to bail him out of jail even though they could well afford it – they just did NOT want to be bothered with having that worthless kid back at home again. He whined for months about the fact that his parents wouldn’t take him back again. He never once owned up to what he was being charged with, he always lied about it. You don’t know this little undergrown adult brat the way I do, whoever you are, “UNKNOWN.” I wish I knew who you are so we could set the record straight about this little creep. You don’t know what you’re talking about. Wylie Ivie is a totally unrepentant, arrogant little piece of garbage, & I hope he somehow gets snagged on another charge & spends a whole lot of time in prison where he belongs.
