Wiley was convicted of shooting to death Jesse Ferguson at a Roanoke hotel.

Jurors listened to Wiley as he said he'd never been in trouble with the law before and NEVER would be again.
His lawyer said Wiley did not know what he was getting into when he came to a Roanoke motel where his brother and Ferguson were fighting over a woman.
But the prosecution said Wiley went too far when he got his gun.

A Roanoke pawn shop could have to pay tens of thousands of dollars in refunds, under a settlement reached with the State Attorney General's office.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Roanoke;


When Tim McGuire opened a pawn shop a couple of years ago, he wanted to avoid stockpiling jewelry, T-V sets and other merchandise.
He figured he'd just lend money on vehicle TITLES, rather than take cars themselves.
Last Fall, a judge in Richmond ruled that pawn shops can only accept physical items... not vehicle titles.
The ruling could cost McGuire thousands of dollars, but he settled the case without a fight.
