Elected Official’s Sex Abuse Case Will Go To Grand Jury

490px-Cranberry_Lake_New_York_USGS_topo_map_1919Dutchess County Legislator Michael Kelsey’s sexual abuse case is heading to a grand jury. The New York state legislator is charged with first degree sexual abuse and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly having inappropriate contact with two teenage Boy Scouts.

The prosecutor in the case has maintained that she has no intention of reducing the felony sex abuse to a misdemeanor. The 15-year-old victims told police that Kelsey groped them during two separate incidents while on a Boy Scout trip in August to Cranberry Lake State Campground, located in northern New York’s St. Lawrence County.

Kelsey has said he plans to seek re-election in spite of the criminal charges.
