More information on Maisenhelder, indecent liberties charges
There is more information about the indecent liberties charges against a Wilmington man who owns and operates an after school program. Incident reports provide more clues about the allegations that lead to the charges.
John Maisenhelder is charged with three counts of indecent liberties with a minor. An incident report from the Wilmington Police Department dates back to April 27th. Another report was made a month later, to the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office.
Both list the address of Maisenhelder’s after school program, CAST, as the location of the incident. The alleged incidents are indecent liberties with children.
The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office incident report is dated a month later. John Maisenhelder was accused of “fondling minor children”.
The district attorney’s office said there are three alleged victims. Maisenhelder owns and teaches karate at CAST, an after school program in Wilmington. After an informational meeting for parents Thursday night at the Wilmington Police Department, a parent told WWAY police have video of Maisenhelder inappropriately touching children.
Maisenhelder is in the New Hanover County Jail under a $500,000 bond. The district attorney’s office believes news of the charges against Maisenhelder may bring more allegations from current and former students.
If anyone is concerned, they are urged to call the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office at 910-798-4260.
