- Rape in the 3rd Degree (Class E Felony);
- Criminal Sex Act in the 3rd Degree (Class E Felony);
- Endangering the Welfare of a Child (Class A Misdemeanor).
He was later released to the Alternatives to Incarceration Program, set to reappear in Cortlandville Town Court this Wednesday (May 12) at 11:30 am.
