Gainesville Man Charged with Sex Abuse, Cruelty to Animals
GAINESVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - State Police say a 23-year-old western New York man has been charged with sexually abusing two girls and neglecting four puppies kept in a cage at his rural home.
They arrested Robert DeCarr of Gainesville last weekend and charged him with sexually abusing a 9-year-old girl in 2006 and a 13-year-old girl in May.
Troopers say when they arrived at his town of Gainesville home to arrest him, they found a cage on the porch with three emaciated puppies and one dead puppy inside. Police say he and a 20-year-old man living at the home were both charged with cruelty to animals and neglect of an animal.
DeCarr is being held in the Wyoming County Jail on $50,000 bail.
