Victorville man gets weekend jail for child molestation

VICTORVILLE • A Victorville man convicted of molesting a 17-year-old girl at his house was sentenced Tuesday morning to four months in jail to be served during weekends.

Steven Wooley Sr., 47, will also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Victorville Superior Court Judge Lynn Poncin sentenced him to three years of probation, which includes the weekend jail time.

Wooley was convicted of one misdemeanor count of child molestation during a jury trial in August. He could have faced a maximum of one year in jail.

The victim testified that Wooley offered her a job at his Louisiana Fried Chicken restaurant in Hesperia while she was walking home alone. He took her to his house where he inappropriately touched her and exposed himself, the victim said.

Wooley also solicited her to appear in his porn video and suggested she get emancipated from her parents in court, according to the girl.

Although Wooley didn’t take the stand during his trial, he called the allegations all lies before his attorney advised him not to talk to the press.

Wooley, who remained out of custody after the sentencing, will have to report to Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center on Dec. 28, according to court records.
