Man changes mind on plea deal after being thrown in jail

NORWICH – A man pleaded guilty last week to having sex with a minor after he was thrown in jail for threatening the victim at his last court appearance.

On Feb. 8, Michael A. Demuth, 33, of Norwich, pleaded guilty to one count of third degree rape, an E class felony, admitting he had sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl on at least one occasion between March and April of 2008 in the Town of Oxford.

He was sentenced to two years in state prison and five years post-release supervision. He will also have to register as a sex offender for at least 20 years.

On Jan. 22, Demuth was remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility on $20,000 bail after making a threat towards the victim in the case, who was not present in court at the time.
