Adam C. Mesiti, 46, of Brockport pleaded guilty to third-degree rape today. As part of a plea deal, he will face no more than six months in the county jail, plus 10 years of probation when he is sentenced on Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. He also will likely have to register as a sex offender.

Mesiti was arrested in early March, 60 counts of sex crimes – 10 counts of third degree rape, 20 counts of third degree criminal sexual act and 30 counts of sex misconduct.

Mesiti was employed by C.O.P. Security, a private firm contracted to provide security services at the Holley School District in 2014 when the alleged incidents took place.

The Holley School District and C.O.P. Security fully cooperated with the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office during this month-long investigation, Undersheriff Chris Bourke said when Mesiti’s arrest was announced on March 4.

Mesiti appeared in court this afternoon with his wife and two sons.

As part of the plea, Judge James Punch asked Mesiti if he had sexual intercourse on Oct. 22, 2014 with the 16-year-old victim. Mesiti said he did.

He remains free on $1,000 bail. The judge issued an order of protection, with no communication allowed from Mesiti to the victim.

Mesiti’s attorney Christian Kennedy asked the judge to stop many of the unfounded allegations in the community against Mesiti. Punch said he wasn’t going to put a “gag order” on the case.

Mesiti, owner of Five Sons Winery/RG Brewery, stopped working out of the Holley school district following the 2014 school year.
