Man, 71, arrested for sexual abuse

A local man was arrested and charged with second-degree sexual abuse last week for allegedly having sexual contact with a child.

Stanley A. Forrest, 71, of Whitehall, is accused of having a 14-year-old child, with whom he was acquainted, touch him sexually.

In New York State, second-degree sexual abuse is considered a misdemeanor. It becomes a felony if the child is 11 years old or younger.

Forrest was arraigned in Whitehall village court and remanded to the Washington County jail for lack of bail.

Additional charges are pending and authorities are asking anyone with additional information to call New York State Police at 692-3017.
