BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) — Jurors have found a man guilty of nine counts of child sex crimes.

Stacey Glenn Wilhite was convicted Wednesday, Feb. 2 of seven counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and one count each of molestation and attempted molestation.

The 54-year-old Bossier City man is scheduled to be sentenced May 13.

The trial took place at the Bossier Parish Courthouse in Benton with Judge Michael Nerren presiding. It began the last week of January.

Wilhite was arrested in July 2020 and initially charged with two counts of sexual battery/touching and one count of indecent behavior with juveniles. He eventually pleaded not guilty.

Then in September, KSLA’s Doug Warner spoke with the parents of alleged victims. They say what happened to their child took place in a “five- to 10-minute window.”

The family lived in the same neighborhood as Wilhite for several years. This was in Bossier City’s Tiburon neighborhood off Shed Road.

Another parent told KSLA News 12 that her child was victimized as early as 2014 while she was visiting a friend in the Tiburon neighborhood. The child eventually revealed what happened, alleging more encounters. That’s when more charges were brought against Wilhite.

In February 2021, one of the mothers of an alleged victim spoke with KSLA News 12, upset that the court had moved up a bond hearing for Wilhite and didn’t notify her or the other parents involved in the case. Wilhite’s bond was set at $2 million.

Six juveniles and some parents testified during the trial.
