More Greece Sex Crimes News

The D&C reports: Greece man charged with rape, trespass

A 21-year-old Greece man accused of rape pleaded not guilty in City Court today.
Calvin C. Franklin was charged yesterday with second-degree rape, a felony, and second-degree criminal trespass, a misdemeanor, according to City Court records.
Given the nature of the charges, additional details of the incident were not immediately available.
Franklin was remanded to the Monroe County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond. He is slated to return to court for a preliminary hearing at 11 a.m. Monday.

SCATS ~~ Finally, we have someone other than cops & teachers committing sex crimes in Greece. There goes our "Safest Town" designation. (If you can't hear the sarcasm, don't bother commenting on my word choice.)


Pignato's Second Trial Date Set

Gary Pignato, the former Greece Police Officer who was convicted in June of coercing a woman into sex, is set to face another trial. Pignato is scheduled for a trial on November 30 on similar charges involving a second woman who Pignato found using marijuana in 2005. It’s alleged that Pignato threatened her with the possible loss of custody of her children if she didn’t have sex with him.Pignato was sentenced to two to six years in prison in the earlier trial. (

SCATS ~~ How convenient! Pignato's trial is the same date as Roderick Scott's. Maybe we can get Rahn's hearing set for Nov. 30th too. Then when we book the War Memorial, we can have a three-ring circus!

We all know that Mr. Auberger will try to postpone Rahn's hearing for as long as possible.

Of course Auberger or others who stand to lose politically will do everything they can to keep Rahn and the other top GPD brass hearings from happening until after the November election. PIGnato's second trial won't be held either until after the November elections. Unless of course PIGnato decides it is in his best interest to plead guilty ahead of time.

So is that why Roderick Scott's trial has been set so late, too?
