GLENDALE - The following is a press release from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office:

County Attorney Andrew Thomas announced today that Glendale resident Darrin Wiles, 39 (DOB

10/31/68), has been sentenced to 258 years in prison for charges related to sexual misconduct and sexual

exploitation of a minor female victim. Wiles was found guilty by a jury on the 12 counts presented to

them. The verdicts were returned on August 5, 2008. Commissioner James Blomo issued the sentence

on September 23, 2008.

The defendant was indicted on April 3, 2007 following his arrest by Phoenix Police. It was revealed in

courtroom testimony that Wiles had inappropriate contact with the underage friend of his girlfriend's

daughter multiple times.

"The testimony of the young victim was courageous and led to justice being done in this case," said

Thomas. "I also want to acknowledge the fine police work and the efforts of our prosecutors in getting

this defendant off the streets for good."

Deputy County Attorney Paul Kittredge prosecuted the case.
