— A Sampson County man was arrested Friday on a dozen charges involving sex crimes with minors.

Daniel Adam Wilson, 61, of Reedsford Road in Clinton, was charged with two counts of first-degree statutory rape, three counts of crimes against nature, three counts of statutory sex offense against a minor and four counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.

He was jailed under a $700,000 bond.

The charges stem from a complaint that led investigators to search Wilson's home on July 17. That search led to further charges, authorities said.

    What a sicko!! I'm glad they caught him so he cannot destroy any other lives of children!

    That may have been true, but its not my experience in recent years. He will not see the light of day again. :)

    It's possible if he's given the fullest sentence allowed on every single charge to be served consecutively and not concurrently, but I haven't seen that happen in NC in a very long time. I certainly hope that you are right.

    Our laws are so lacking in punishment for pedophiles, it makes me ill.

    Aaaah, he'll most likely get a slap on the wrist and be out in time to destroy several other children's souls before he's 70. Our laws are so lacking in punishment for pedophiles, it makes me ill.
