— A Rotterdam Junction man has been accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl.

Glenville police arrested Alexander J. Grandstaff, 20, of Sharon Drive, saying he abused the girl in late December at her Glenville residence.

Grandstaff was charged with one felony count of first-degree criminal sex act and misdemeanor charges of forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child.

He was arraigned before in Glenville Town Court and sent to the Schenectady County jail on $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.

One thing I don't understand about the law is how can a 20 year old be charged with endagering the welfare of a child when if someone gave him alcohol they could face the same charge. If he is a child for that law shouldn't he be charged as a child. I surely don't condone what he is accused of but the law seems lost in it's wording in this politically correct world we live in now.
