Sean M. Spencer

A 33-year old Waterville man is charged with raping a woman last Sunday at his home. Oneida County investigators say Sean M. Spencer of Tower Street, Waterville is now charged with Rape in the 1st Degree.

Authorities say the female victim was, "unable to give consent because she was physically helpless." Investigators did not reveal what caused the woman to be incapacitated. It is not customary for investigators to reveal anything, aside from gender, that might identify a victim of sexual assault.

Spencer was arraigned in the Village of New York Mills Court and he was remanded to the Oneida County Correctional Facility in lieu of $20,000 cash or bond bail.
