Le Roy police arrest two men - an alleged slasher and another accused of criminal sex acts
An investigation into an alleged assault which occurred in January 2013 resulted in the arrest Wednesday of a 29-year-old Le Roy native living in the City of Rochester. Kenneth G. Smith III, of 911 Lake Ave., was arrested by the Le Roy Police Department on July 23 and charged on two counts: criminal possession of a weapon, 3rd, a Class-D felony; and first-degree assault, a Class-B felony.
It is alleged that on Jan. 10, 2013, Smith was involved in an altercation in an apartment on Main Street in the Village of Le Roy. Smith allegedly possessed a dangerous instrument in the form of a glass item with intent to use it against another (while having a prior criminal conviction). He then allegedly used it to strike the victim numerous times about the face causing permanent facial disfigurement/scarring. Smith was arraigned in Le Roy Town Court and released under supervision of the Genesee Justice.
Michael J. Stack Jr., 37, of 7450 Randall Road, Le Roy was also arrested by the Le Roy Police Department on Wednesday. He is charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual act, a Class-B felony.
It is alleged that yesterday, while in an apartment on East Main Street in the Village of Le Roy, Stack engaged in oral sexual contact with the victim while the victim was incapable of consent by the reason of being physically helpless and by forcible compulsion.
The charges stem from an allegation by the victim that the victim was sleeping and awoke to Stack kneeling over the victim having oral sexual contact with the victim.
Stack was jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail.
I gotta tell ya, this michael stack criminal sexual act story just isn't adding up for me......it just doesn't make sense. For a man to be accused of something like this and put in jail for $5,000 bail and possibly losing his job , there better be some pretty hard evidence against him. It sounds like a pissed off girl too me and the whole story is ridiculous....ALLEGEDLY...gotta get that part in there...they prolly should state some better facts on these stories before they print them , they could very well ruin this mans reputation
Steve says ( among other nonsense) "they prolly should state some better facts on these stories before they print them , they could very well ruin this mans reputation".
The news reports what the police agencies report to them. It is not clear who the " they " is that Steve refers to.
ALLEGED is a word used until a person is found guilty.
Also Steve assumes a lot - that the (alleged) victim was a girl and that Michael Stack is employed.
Gary.....only two things I have to say too you......I wonder if you worked when you were 37 and assuming the victim was a female was a normal reaction.... not sure where your mind is at...thats a little scary....you spelled victim wrong btw....
Steve, you are right I did misspell victim, corrected it!
Thank you for your input!
Arrest reports are just that. Arrest reports. All it says is somebody was arrested. It doesn't say the person is guilty. It doesn't say the person did any of the acts contained in the arrest report. It merely says law enforcement authorities claim this person did that thing.
I continued to be amazed that such a simple fact eludes so many people.
I agree, Howard. Whole-heartedly!
As I've said before, you could print, "Red - Green - Orange", but by the time it gets passed around, it might come back as "Black - Chicago - Turpentine".
It's a phenomenon I've never understood. I guess it's just one of those, "It is what it is" things.
Why is someone who is accused of two felonies...rather high level b felonies...out on such a low bail....?
That may be the case Howard. However there is a local man that was accused of downloading child porn and he was fired by his employer for this arrest. But in the trial it was proven that he had never opened or looked at said porn, it was downloaded by a program called frostwire that he let a neighborhood kid install and use.
He was found not guilty and exonerated but he never got his job back. Perhaps that is why some people tend to assume things like this. I know the "system" is supposed to work a certain way. But reality often intrudes on the way things are supposed to happen.
