Rotterdam teen faces sexual misconduct charge; Princetown man charged with menacing, unlawful imprisonment
PRINCETOWN An investigation that began with a call for medical help for an intoxicated underage female led to several arrests, including one of a teen on a sexual misconduct count, state police said today.
The investigation began April 10 as state police and Rotterdam EMS responded to a residence in Princetown for the intoxicated female. The person was taken to Ellis Hospital, treated and released.
Police, though, continued the investigation, including talking with the girl and others present when the victim was incapacitated, police said.
In all, three people were charged related to the party, including 17-year-old Anthony A. Manning of Rotterdam. Manning faces one count each of sexual misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child.
State police did not indicate what Manning is accused of doing. He was arraigned in the Town of Princetown Court and issued an order of protection to stay away from the underage victim, police said.
Gina A. Skinner, 44, of Princetown was charged with three counts of unlawfully dealing with a child by giving alcohol to a person under 21, and one count of unlawfully dealing with a child, all misdemeanors.
She was arraigned in the Town of Rotterdam Court and is scheduled to reappear in the Town of Princetown Court Wednesday.
A 16-year-old who provided false information regarding who supplied the alcohol to the teens was also charged. The teen’s name was not released. He was arrested for making a false statement and arraigned in the Town of Princetown Court and issued an order of protection to stay away from the underage victim.
State police also learned of another incident, one two days after the party, where those interviewed told of being threatened with a gun.
In that incident, police believe Cody M. Dickershaid, 20, of Princetown menaced his 17-year-old girlfriend with a .45-caliber handgun during a domestic dispute and refused to let her leave the residence. He then assaulted and menaced a second victim in the residence, police said.
Dickershaid was charged with second-degree menacing, third-degree assault, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, misdemeanors, and second-degree harassment, a violation.
