Greensboro, NC -- Deputies with the Guilford County Sheriff's Office arrested a man charged with raping a child and abandoning the baby he conceived with her in the 90s.

Michael Cain Wilson was arrested Tuesday, but deputies said the case goes back to 1991.

Investigators said Wilson sexually abused a child at multiple locations in Guilford County from 1991 through 2003. Their investigation of these claims connects Wilson to a newborn abandoned in a stairwell November 12, 1999 on McKnight Mill Road.

"We have a case where this juvenile at a very young age found herself in the care and custody of a gentleman who was perpetrating on her in very very sad ways," said Detective Triche with the Guilford County Sheriff's Office.

According to deputies, Wilson delivered the baby he had with the girl - who was 13-years-old at the time - in his home to conceal the abuse.

The Sheriff's Office couldn't tell News 2 where the abandoned baby is now. The victim is now 28-years-old. The abuse started when she was 5-years-old and lasted until she was 17.

Detective Triche added, "The victim came forward within the last month and we were able to bring charges yesterday to make arrests."

Wilson was charged with:  

  • 7 counts of first degree rape of a child (Class B1 Felony) 
  • 3 counts of first degree statutory rape of a child 13-15 years of age (Class B1 Felony) 
  • 10 counts of indecent liberties with a child (Class F Felony) 
  • 6 counts of sex offense by a substitute parent (Class E Felony)
  • 1 count of child abuse inflicting serious physical injury (Class E Felony) 
  • 1 count of child abandonment (Class I Felony)

He is currently being held in the Greensboro Jail under a $1.7 million bond. 

Wilson's wife, Antoinette Rochelle Wilson, was also arrested for her involvement with this case.

She was charged with: 

  • 1 count of aiding and abetting first degree rape of a child (Class B1 Felony) 
  • 3 counts of aiding and abetting first degree statutory rape of a child 13-15 years of age (Class B1 Felony) 
  • 4 counts of aiding and abetting indecent liberties with a child (Class F Felony) 
  • 6 counts of aiding and abetting sex offense by a substitute parent (Class E Felony)

She was also placed in the Greensboro Jail. Her bond was set at $350,000.
