The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Newark teenage boy after a rape investigation.

According to MPs, 19-year-old Will Powers of Newark had sexual contact with a 13-year-old woman in December 2019.

He was charged with second degree rape earlier this week and sent to Ontario County Jail.

MPs say he was held on $ 500 bail. The powers will be returned to the Phelps City Court to answer the charges.
