Dylan Curtis Wilson


A Klamath Falls man scheduled to stand trial this week for abusing a young female relative has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison after accepting a plea deal in August.

Dylan Curtis Wilson, 20, was scheduled for trial Thursday on charges including first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and six counts of first-degree sexual abuse and faced a minimum of 25 years in prison.

Wilson instead pleaded guilty Aug. 22 to three counts of first-degree child abuse and was sentenced to 12 months in prison and 10 years of post-prison supervision, minus time served. He was also required to register as a sex offender.

Wilson was arrested Feb. 8 for offenses occurring between March 1, 2016, and Feb. 3. Police said the victim, 7 at the time, informed authorities of multiple instances of abuse committed by the defendant.

Wilson initially denied the accusations, but in his petition to change his plea he admitted to the abuse as alleged by the court.
