Some sex abuse charges against Lancaster pharmacist withdrawn

Posted: Updated:

A Lancaster County pharmacist is no longer facing charges stemming from sexual abuse allegations made by three of his four accusers.

According to court documents, charges were withdrawn Wednesday in two cases where Stephen Wiley was accused of giving boys alcohol and making sexual advances toward them.

In each case, Wiley had been charged with one count of corruption of minors.

Charges were also dropped in a case where Wiley was accused of inappropriately touching a boy who worked at the pharmacy while the two were at Wiley's home in 1998.

He had been charged with one count each of corruption of minors, unlawful contact with a minor and indecent assault in that case.

Wiley, 60, the founder and former president of Wiley's Pharmacies, was charged last month with crimes against four boys, ages 15 to 17, between 1998 and 2012.

He still faces charges stemming from the fourth accuser, a former employee who says Wiley sexually assaulted him at his Lancaster condominium and at a home in the Poconos in 2006 and 2007.

Wiley is awaiting a preliminary hearing on charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, two counts of unlawful contact with a minor, statutory sexual assault, four counts of corruption of minors, and three counts of indecent assault.
