Between November 2018 and February 2019, the defendant, while working as a school athletic trainer for Geneseo Central School, engaged in an ongoing relationship with the minor victim.

The plea is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Barry Chase; the Rochester Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Stephen Belongia; and the Livingston County District Attorney’s Office, under the direction of District Attorney Gregory J. McCaffrey.
Sentencing is scheduled for January 11, 2021, at 3:30 p.m. before Judge Wolford.
The former athletic trainer for the Geneseo Central School District was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl in the village of Geneseo.
