Albion man arraigned for predatory sexual assault against child
ALBION – An Albion man was arraigned in Orleans County Court for predatory sexual assault against a child after he allegedly had sexual intercourse and committed another sex act against the child, the District Attorney’s Office said.
Robert Tetrault, 37, allegedly committed the crimes against a child, ages 9 to 10, from January to July 2012. Tetrault was arraigned last week in Orleans County Court by Judge Sanford Church.
Tetrault has previously been convicted in court on charges of attempted second-degree assault and third-degree attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He was sentenced to 2 to 4 years in state prison in October 2013 after fighting someone with a knife on May 23, 2013. Tetrault caused a severe laceration across another’s person hand who tried to intervene in the fight.
In other cases last week in County Court:
• Miranda Rose, formerly of Orleans County, was sentenced to two years on probation after she admitted to collecting $3,577 in welfare benefits when she was living out of the county in Baltimore.
She pleaded guilty last month to fifth-degree welfare fraud. She agreed to pay $3,577 in restitution.
• The judge arraigned an Albion man who allegedly had drugs, and a knife while threatening another man on Washington Street in January.
Demetrius Bennett, 39, faces charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, menacing in the second degree, and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth and seventh degree.
Judge Church set bail at $10,000.
