Westerlo man faces sex misconduct charges

— Following a November arrest, State Police in Princetown have filed additional charges against a Westerlo man for allegedly sexually engaging a minor.

State Police on Monday, Dec. 24, arrested Justin A. O’Toole, 20, and charged him with sexual misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child.

An investigation by police following O’Toole’s earlier arrest revealed he allegedly had been sexually involved with a 15-year-old girl at separate locations in the towns of Rotterdam and Glenville.

O’Toole was issued appearance tickets returnable in the Town of Rotterdam on Jan. 10 and Town of Glenville on Jan. 17.

State Police last month received a report of a missing 15-year-old girl who was seen at Crossgates Mall. The following day, she was located in Westerlo and police discovered she was involved with her boyfriend, O’Toole.

Police arrested O’Toole on Nov. 28 for endangering the welfare of a child.
