NORWICH – Chenango County Court heard the case of a Norwich man accused of rape in the third degree on Monday.
Aaron J. Squires, 36, was present in court, after being transported from the Chenango County Correctional Facility, with his assigned attorney John Cameron.
First Assistant District Attorney Michael D. Ferrarese was present to represent the people before Judge Frank B. Revoir on the matter.
Squires was previously arrested by a Chenango County Sheriff's Deputy on March 30, 2016 for the crime of criminal contempt in the second degree, after an investigation into a report of him violating the conditions of a stay away order of protection.
Allegedly, Detective-Sergeant Rebuen Roach of the Norwich Police Department relayed information to the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office that while incarcerated, Squires had been communicating with the victim of previous crimes and that there is a valid order of protection in place, issued by the City of Norwich Court.
