Maxwell Wade acquitted of two sexual offenses

21-year-old Maxwell Wade, has been acquitted of two sexual offenses. Wade was charge with two counts of carnal knowledge with a minor who allege he had sexual intercourse with her twice in April of 2010. The 12-year-old girl in her testimony last week told the court that sometime between  April 1 and the 30th, of 2010, she caught a Ladyville bus and travelled to Wade’s home where they had sex. She said Wade came to meet her at the bus stop and that’s when they walked to his home where the incident took place.  In his defense, Wade who did not denied the 12-year-old being at his home said that she told a lied on him in court as they never had sex and that he only played and sang two songs for the girl. This morning the jury of 9 stepped into the deliberating room and emerged four hours later with the announcement that Wade was not guilty of both counts. We note that there was no medical examination tendered into evidence regarding the young lady being examined as she did not report the incident to police until December 2010.  In the trial, Wade was represented by attorney, Bryan Neal.
