Wheeling Sex Offender in More Hot Water


A sex offender in Wheeling found himself in more trouble Thursday after he failed to register in Ohio County.

Joseph J. Weidman, 49, pleaded guilty to registering as a sex offender in federal court. Weidman failed to register and update his registration as a sex offender after he moved to Massachusetts in May.

Weidman now faces 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250.000. He will be sentenced in the near future and his actual sentence will be based on the seriousness of the offenses and his prior criminal history.
