Glens Falls man charged with sexual abuse

BOMBAY — A Glens Falls man has been charged with sexual abuse.

Scott R. Reese, 51, was arrested Saturday by St. Regis Mohawk Tribal Police and charged with first-degree sexual abuse, with contact by forcible compulsion, a felony, according to a news release from the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe.

Forcible compulsion means to compel by either use of physical force or a threat that is expressed or implied that places a person in fear of immediate death, physical injury or kidnapping, according to New York State Penal Law.

Reese was arraigned in Bombay Town Court and sent to Franklin County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.

He was due back in court later on Tuesday and remained jailed.

No further information was available on Tuesday.
