New York Man Charged With Traveling To Engage In Sex With Minor

Gary C. Green, Jr., 43, of Johnstown, New York, was charged with travel to engage in illicit sexual contact with a minor, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The criminal information charges that from on or about August 3, 2013, through on or about August 4, 2013, Green knowingly traveled in interstate commerce, from the State of New York to the State of Ohio, for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with another person, that is, a fifteen-year-old girl.

If convicted, the sentence in this case will be determined by the Court after consideration of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines which depend upon a number of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the unique characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Carol M. Skutnik.  The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Youngstown Office.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
