Child Predator Task Force Investigation Results in Conviction of Christopher Wheeler

WILMINGTON – Christopher Wheeler, 54, was found guilty on Monday by a Delaware Superior Court judge of 25 counts of dealing in child pornography. The conviction was the result of an investigation by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force, which Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden established in 2007.

Each count of dealing in child pornography carries a 2-year minimum mandatory sentence, meaning that Wheeler faces a minimum of 50 years in jail when he is sentenced in March by Superior Court Judge Eric M. Davis.

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant Oct. 30, 2013 for Wheeler after Child Predator Task Force detectives recovered multiple images of child pornography on computers seized by investigators during an October 22, 2013, search of Wheeler’s Wilmington home and office.

Since its start in 2007, the Child Predator Task Force has been responsible for more than 200 convictions and the rescue of more than 120 children from abusive situations.
