posted by Howard B. Owens in crime, Le Roy.

A 29-year-old Gilbert Street resident ahs been accused of sexually assaulting another Gilbert Street resident May 9 and is being held without bail on felony charges.

Charles D. Johnson, of 82 Gilbert St., Building #14, Apt. #6, Le Roy, is charged with predatory sexual abuse, a Class A-II violent felony, burglary in the first degree, a Class B violent felony, and criminal possession of a weapon, a Class D felony.

Johnson's arrest came at the end of a two-week investigation that Le Roy PD described in a press release as "intensive" and involving assistance from law enforcement in multiple jurisdictions.

Among the cooperating agencies was the Florida DNA Databank.

Johnson is accused of busting into the residence of a woman on Gilbert Street and sexually assaulting her at knife point.

In its press release, Le Roy PD praised the bravery of the victim "who was placed into a violent situation and handled herself with dignity."

Assisting Le Roy PD were officials at the state and national level who, Le Roy PD said, "understood the seriousness of this crime and worked cooperatively together to assist the victim, gather and process the evidence, identify witnesses and a suspect and eventually make an arrest."

Immediately after the crime was reported, police responded from Le Roy and the Sheriff's Office along with the K-9 units from the State Police and Monroe County to conduct a search for the assilant.

The Genesee County and Monroe County reap crisis agencies also assisted.

Also involved were the Monroe County Crime Lab, NYSP Crime Lab and the District Attorney's Office.

Charles D. Johnson if you are found guilty you should have your life taken from you. A persons home is their sanctuary where their suppose to be safe from disgusting vile things like you. You are a coward a germ who does not deserve to walk among humans. I pray the judge also agrees that to many times sex offenders are let off easy in this county. You should never be given the chance to do it again if your guilty. I hope you get all you deserve from Bubba because your new name is "Bitch".

I agree with both of the comments above. To bad NY state does not have the guts to exacute criminals like this! However, I do hope he gets the max! (If he is found guilty)
Send him to Sing Sing, put him in general population and forget about it!
