LIVINGSTON COUNTY – April Crandall, a pregnant mother of two who was convicted of Rape in the Third Degree after she forced a 15-year-old boy to have sex with her in 2008, has had her case continually soured by allegations of violations of the Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA).
In Livingston County Court on Tuesday, Crandall, 28, made a court appearance on a felony Violation of Probation, for which she was sentenced to a year in local jail, and felony Failure to Register and Verify charge. She was out of jail from her 2008 Rape when she was sentenced for the Violation, and was awaiting remand to the jail when she allegedly created a Facebook page for herself without notifying the Sheriff’s Office.
Crandall is already set to serve a year in Livingston County Jail for her Violation of Probation, and the District Attorney recommends that the court sentence her to another year on top of that if she pleads guilty to the alleged failure to register.
At her sentencing for the Violation in November, county judge Robert Wiggins agreed to postpone her incarceration for a few weeks so that she could make arrangements for her two kids, and make plans for the third child, which is on the way.
