Talk WELE-A/DAYTONA BEACH owner and host DOUG WILHITE entered written not guilty pleas TUESDAY to formal charges of sex with a 15-year-old boy. WILHITE was arrested JULY 9th and is out on bail; the written pleas allowed him not to have to appear in court for TODAY's arraignment.
WILHITE, owner of WELE licensee WINGS COMMUNICATIONS, hosts "THE PREMIER TRAVEL SHOW" on the station. He denies having had sex with the boy, who alleges that WILHITE and he had sex about a dozen times, although he said that he is a nudist and the boy and other friends were nude in his presence.
