Greece Police Arrest Frank Sterling

Charged With Child Sex Abuse

Greece Post Reports: The Greece Police Department has charged a 47-year-old Greece man with seven counts of second-degree sexual abuse for allegedly having sexual contact with young boy — the same man who spent 18 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.

In May 2010, Frank W. Sterling was cleared of the 1988 murder of 74-year-old Viola Manville after another man, Mark Christie, confessed to the killing.

Then, this summer, the department's criminal investigation division charged Sterling of Pond View Heights on July 20. Police say Sterling is accused of having sexual contact with a male child less than 14 years old during the summer of 2010.

"As in all sexual abuse type cases, the Greece Police Department is careful to protect the identity of the victim," read a statement from the department. "The suspect was an acquaintance of the victim but the exact relationship will not be disclosed."

During the initial investigation the Greece Police Department worked with the assistance of the Bivona Child Advocacy Center, according to a press release.

Sterling was arraigned by Greece Town Justice Vince Campbell and remanded to the Monroe County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.

He's due back in Greece Town Court on July 28 at 1 p.m.

I sincerely hope this arrest results from superior investigative skills being applied than those used by Pat Crough in the Manville case. PLEASE don't let there be any foot rubbing during the interviews.

My gut is telling me this kid's mom smells money. One video said she was with her son in one instance when Sterling did something. And it was all a year ago. Give me a break.

Oh that wasn't sexist at all.

Have you ever heard what comes out of her mouth? Sandy baby can and regularly does make sailors leave the room.

Grow a set SCATS, or are you back to bashing Republicans only again?
