Teen arrested on sex charges

A local teen was arrested last Friday for allegedly having sexual contact with two underage girls.

Patrick B. LaPan, 18, of Potter Street was charged with second degree rape, a felony, for allegedly having sex with a 14 year old girl. He was also charged with sexual misconduct, a misdemeanor, for allegedly having sex with a 16 year old girl.

The incidents are alleged to have occurred last month. Police said LaPan is not accused of using physical force, but the age of consent in New York is 17.

LaPan was arrested following an investigation by Whitehall Police. He was arraigned and sent to Washington County Correctional Facility for lack of $500 bail.
