Man charged with having relations with underage girl

A local man was arrested last month after he was accused of having sex with a 13 year old girl.

Brandon M. Bakerian, 30 of Whitehall, was charged with second degree rape, a felony, following an investigation by the Whitehall Police Department and the New York State Police.

Bakerian is accused of having sex with a underage girl on a number of occasions.

The charge does not accuse him of forcing the victim to have sex with him but alleges she was too young to legally consent because she was under the age of 17.

Additional charges are possible.

Bakerian was arraigned in Whitehall Village Court and sent to Washington County Jail.
