    Hunter police officer accused of rape - The Daily Freeman News

    HUNTER – A town of Hunter police officer has been charged with felony rape and criminal sex act for having a sexual relationship with an underage female, state police said.

    Nathan J. VanFleet, 30, of Durham, was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child and official misconduct, both misdemeanors.

    According to state police, VanFleet was arrested Tuesday following an investigation into allegations that he had an inappropriate sexual relationship with an underage female both while on duty as a police officer and while off duty. Police did not give the age of the female.

    VanFleet was arraigned before Catskill Town Justice Robert Carl and sent to Greene County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.

    What age girl, was it forced or statutory (alleged) rape. Not that it would make it right, but it would make it so he should get the needle or not.

    Sad anyway you put it, sick and wrong.

    So I'm guessing a case of statutory rape?

    I guess some guys just never learn. Doesn't matter how mature you think she is - if her *real* ID doesn't say she's 18 yet, forget it.

    You can get 'the needle' for rape? If he's indeed guilty, he should get some time with fed prison gen pop. They loooove pedo's.

    I don't think you can, I meant deserve the needle. If it was statutory, depending on the circumstances, I could go with just doing time. If a LEO forcibly rapes someone he needs to just be gone.

    It sounds like it was consensual, as there were multiple instances, on and off-duty. I will keep checking for new reports and post anything more that gets published.

    Although not brought out in the article, did he use his position as a LEO to cohearse (sp) her into sex. If he did, that is going to bear heavily when he goes to trial, as well as what her age is. I'm assuming this is NYS that this happened. What is the legal age of consent there?

    Could be several factors. I think the age of consent is 17 in NY. Never had a reason to look it up. Girl can be a month shy of 17th birthday.Fighting with parents, Parents could be pissed off that she may be living with PO so parents called DA office. Need more details.

    They are out there, and they need to be dealt with swiftly and decisively.

    There should be no mercy for these types. break the key off in their cell locks as far as I am concerned. (JM2C).

    Not if it's consensual.

    Sounds like he's headed for a lot more non-consensual sex...
