Police make arrest in New Scotland rape case

The Albany County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Fultonville man for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl in the Town of New Scotland.

John P. Morey, 28, was arrested Monday on charges he had sexual contact with the girl over the course of the last five months. Police said the victim was identified during the course of a separate investigation and identified Morey in a subsequent interview. Morey worked in close proximity to where the girl lived and one of his co-workers is currently under investigation for raping the same child, police said.

The child was unable to give consent due to her age, police said.

Morey was charged with five counts of rape in the third degree; five counts of criminal sexual act in the third degree, both felonies; and five misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child. He was arraigned in the Town of New Scotland Court and remanded to Albany County jail without bail. A preliminary hearing date was set for Friday, Nov. 12."
