NORWICH – An Oxford man accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old female victim and two convicted offenders charged with failure to register or verify were arraigned recently in Chenango County Court by Judge Frank B. Revoir, Jr.
• Scott M. Brazee, 39, Oxford, was arraigned on the charges of three counts of sexual abuse in the first degree, a class D felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a class A misdemeanor.
It is alleged, per the indictment, that on or about more than one day in December of 2014, at a Canal Street residence in the Village of Oxford, Brazee did subject a 12-year-old female victim to sexual contact on more than one occasion.
Brazee entered a plea of not guilty on all counts.
District Attorney Joseph A. McBride said Brazee is charged with multiple counts of violent felonies and is facing up to 21 years in state prison for the alleged sex crimes.
“He has a long criminal history since 1992,” said McBride.
McBride requested a $45,000 cash bail, which was an increase from the $20,000 cash bail that was set by the local court.
Brazee's public defender, John Cameron, requested bail be continued in the amount set by the local.
