      Sylvan Beach man accused of rape of underage victim

      Jon Owens
      A Sylvan Beach man was arrested following an investigation into a sexual assault that allegedly happened in the Town of Verona earlier this month.

      The Oneida County Child Advocacy Center says Jon Owens, 22, was charged with rape.

      He was arraigned in New York Mills Court and remanded to the Oneida County Correctional Facility in lieu of $5,000.00 bail.

      The case will be referred to the Oneida County District Attorney's Office for Grand Jury consideration.

      The victim has been offered counseling services through the Advocacy Center.
