A Rome man has been arrested on multiple felony sex charges.

State Police and officials with the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center say an investigation began in March, alleging that 44-year-old Michael Fox sexually abused a girl under the age of 17.

Officials say during the investigation, it was found that the sexual abuse occurred in the City of Rome from the winter of 2020 through the summer of last year.

Upon completion of the investigation, the case was turned over to the Oneida County District Attorney’s office where it was presented to the Grand Jury in this month.

Fox was arrested and held at the Oneida County Jail to await for Centralized Arraignment.

He was subsequently indicted on the following charges:

  • (5) counts of Predatory Sexual Assault Against a Child, a class “A-II” Felony
  • (3) counts of Rape 1st degree, a class “B” Felony
  • (1) count of Attempted Rape 1st degree, a class “C” Felony
  • (2) counts of Criminal Sexual Act 1st degree, a class “B” Felony
  • (2) counts of Sexual Abuse 1st degree, a class “D” Felony
  • (1) count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, a class “a” Misdemeanor.

The victim was offered services through the Oneida County CAC.
