WESTMORELAND, N.Y. (AP) – Authorities say they’ve charged four teenage boys and a 20-year-old man with sexual misconduct after a teenage girl was assaulted during a party in central New York.
Utica-area media outlets report that officials with the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center say the five male suspects, who range in age from 17 to 20, continually sexually assaulted the girl during a Dec. 4 house party in the town of Westmoreland.
The agency says it began its investigation after hearing from several parents.
Officials say a 36-year-old woman who lives at the home was charged with unlawfully dealing with a child for hosting the party and providing alcohol to underage guests.
All six were issued tickets to appear in Westmoreland Town Court Jan. 23.
