SALISBURY, Md. -- A Delmar man pleaded guilty to the sexual abuse of a minor stemming from incidents that happened about seven years ago. 

The Office of the State's Attorney for Wicomico County said John Edward Shipley, 62 of Delmar, MD, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse of a minor. The office said the charge comes from multiple incidents of alleged abuse in 2010 and 2011, when the victim was under the age of 10 years old and was in Shipley's temporary care. 

The Wicomico County Circuit Court ordered an investigation prior to sentencing. A date for the sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
