GREENWICH, N.Y. (AP) - A 33-year-old man faces rape charges after state police say he had sex in a hotel with a child he met online and drove 145 miles north to meet in person.
The Albany Times Union reports that Matthew S. Berry of White Plains was arrested Friday. Troopers say he arranged to meet the youth near the child's Washington County home and drove the youth to a Lake George hotel.
Police declined to disclose the age or gender of the youth. They said Berry provided alcohol and paid the youth for having sex.
Berry was charged with third-degree rape and unlawfully dealing with a child. He was sent to Warren County Jail on $10,000 bail. Police didn't know if he has a lawyer.
