Liberty man sentenced for rape


July 9, 2013

Sullivan County District Attorney Jim Farrell announced today that Christopher McGuire, 23, of Liberty, NY was sentenced in Sullivan County Court to four years in state prison and ten years of post release supervision for his convictions for Rape in the 2nd Degree and Disseminating Indecent Material to Minors in the 1st Degree.

Farrell said that McGuire admitted to having sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl in May of 2010 and to sending a photograph of his privates to a 14-year-old girl in September 2010. McGuire was arrested in September of 2012 after an investigation by the Fallsburg Police and a tip police received about McGuire’s activities with minors.

Farrell said, “The Fallsburg Police and the detective division did a fine job investigating the allegations here and were able to put together a good case which has resulted in the removal from the community of an individual who was preying on young girls.”
