Wheeler (Adam Cook) Former WXXL PD Sentenced
S. Wheeler aka Adam Cook, former program director at WXXL-FM
106.7 pleaded no contest to charges that he used the Internet to lure a
child for sex and send sexually explicit photographs to a Citrus County
sheriff's detective posing as a 14-year-old girl.
Circuit Judge Ric Howard gave the 49-year-old a suspended 15-year prison
sentence, meaning Wheeler won't spend jail time if he successfully completes 15
years of sex offender probation. Judge Howard also ordered him to pay
$3,000 in fines, undergo electronic monitoring and register as a sex offender.
Wheeler could have been sentenced to jail for as long as 15 years. Wheeler's
wife was in court supporting him. Wheeler apologized for his actions, saying
that he is "looking for a new start."
