WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — The former Trumbull County dance teacher convicted of gross sexual imposition charges is set to be sentenced on June 21.
It was originally scheduled for June 8 but was delayed until the six unresolved rape charges are taken care of.
A jury found Wilkes guilty of five counts of gross sexual imposition, three of which were lesser included offenses on rape charges. She was found not guilty on two additional counts of rape.
The jury could not reach a verdict on the remaining six counts of rape she was charged with.
Wilkes faces up to 60 months in prison on each of the five counts she was convicted of.
Wilkes was accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl between December 2021 and February 2022.
