Stuyvesant Man Charged with Serving Alcohol, Then Taking Advantage of Minor
A 51-year-old Stuyvesant man is under arrest, facing multiple charges after allegedly sexually abusing a child.
Scott W. Folmsbee was arrested on December 23, 2021 following a several months-long investigation that began in August of 2021. New York State Police started the investigation after a possible sexual assault was reported after a minor victim was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital. At that time police say that their “(investigation) determined Folmsbee provided an alcoholic beverage to the victim, who is under the age of 21, and then performed a criminal sexual act while the victim was incapacitated.”
Folmsbee was arraigned before Judge Malcolm G. Smalley at the Town of Stockport Court in Hudson. He was released on his own recognizance pending a court appearance on Monday, January 3, 2022.
Folmsbee is being charged with the following:
- Criminal Sexual Act in the 2nd Degree (Class D felony)
- Unlawful Dealing with a Child in the 1st Degree (Class A misdemeanor)
NOTE: Suspected cases of child abuse should immediately be reported to police at 911 or to a local police department. Calls can also be made anonymously to the New York State Central Register of Child Abuse and Maltreatment, also known as the “Child Abuse Hotline,” at: (800) 342.3720. The hotline is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls to the hotline are anonymous.
