ALBION – An Albion man pleaded guilty to second-degree rape in Orleans County Court this afternoon and faces up to 4 years in state prison.

Christopher Pressley, 35, admitted to having sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old girl last December. Pressley was 34 at the time.

He was asked by Sanford Church, the county court judge, if Pressley knew how old the girl was.

“I thought she was 13 or 14,” Pressley responded.

He is a second felony offender with a previous assault conviction. He could have faced a maximum of 3 to 7 years in state prison. As part of the plea agreement, he will face a maximum of 4 years in prison, as well as five years of post-release supervision.

He also will be a registered sex offender.

Pressley also could be fined up to $5,000 and pay $325 in other court charges, as well as a $50 DNA fee.

In other cases this afternoon:

Jason P. Muck, 41, of Medina was sentenced to four months of weekends in the Orleans County Jail plus five years of probation for felony driving while intoxicated.

He was charged on March 30 by State Police on Route 63 in the Town of Yates and registered a Blood Alcohol Content of 0.17 percent, about twice the legal limit.

Muck also was fined $1,000, and must pay a $300 court surcharge, $25 crime victim fee and $50 DNA fee. He also will need to use a interlock ignition device, which measures his BAC, when he resumes driving.

Stacey Sheppard of Monroe County was sentenced to five years of probation for promoting prison contraband by bringing suboxone to the Albion Correctional Facility. She also needs to do 40 hours of community service and pay the $300 court surcharge, $25 crime victim fee and $50 DNA fee.

Judge Church said the trial is on in the case against Collen Poole of Medina. Poole was in court today with his attorney, Robert Fogg.

Poole has rejected a plea offer to criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree, with a cap of five years in state prison.

He was charged on March 1 after police found cocaine, marijuana and pills identified as Hydrocodone and Ecstasy.

The trial begins with jury selection at 9:30 a.m. on Monday.
