Accused molester faces 3 counts

A Bluffton man is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old boy several times over the course of six months.

Allen County prosecutors formally charged Roger W. Wiles, 26, with three felony counts of child molesting this week.

Allen Superior Court documents list Wiles’ aliases as Jordan W. Wiles and Wayne Wiles.

A boy told police in August that Wiles began having sex with him about Memorial Day last year.

The episodes came to a stop before the last day of school, which also coincided with the boy’s 14th birthday, according to court documents.

Wiles was being held in lieu of $60,000 bail.
