SANGERFIELD, N.Y. – A 38-year-old Sangerfield man has been charged with rape after investigators say he had sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl.
Oneida County Sheriff’s Office arrested Shawn Lyon Tuesday following an investigation that started when a complaint was received on June 26.
The case was handed over to the Child Advocacy Center due to the victim’s age.
Investigators says the alleged sexual interactions started in April and continued until May.
Lyon is charged with third-degree rape, an E felony. He was arraigned and held in jail on $2,000 cash bail or $6,000 bond.
An order of protection has been issued on the victim’s behalf.
