GENESEO – A local man who was released from prison in May was rearrested on a felony sex charge and several misdemeanor charges for allegedly throwing a 16-year old girl to the floor, and allegedly engaging in sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl.
Anthony Adams, 22, is now facing charges of Harassment, an A misdemeanor, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, an A misdemeanor, Menacing in the Third Degree, a B misdemeanor, and Criminal Sex Act in the Third Degree, an E felony, and a Violation of Parole after being arrested by Geneseo Police Officer Benjamin Swanson on June 30.
“Adams was cooperative with us, but these cases are always troubling,” said Geneseo Police Chief Eric Osganian. “After talking with the DA’s Office, the incident with the 16-year-old allegedly didn’t cause injury, so it was not elevated to an Assault charge.”
According to the NYS Department of Corrections, Adams spent more than 3 years in prison for Burglary in the Third Degree, starting in November 2011. He was released on May 26, 2015, after serving the maximum time for his sentence.
The separate incidents are alleged to have occurred on two different dates.
Adams was arraigned in front of Geneseo Justice Thomas Bushnell and remanded to the Livingston County Jail in lieu of $7,000 cash or $15,000 bond.
