Troy father, son accused of sexually abusing young girl
TROY, N.Y. -- A Lansingburgh father and son are under arrest, accused of sexually abusing the same young girl, police said.
40-year Scott Wolf and his 18-year old son, Robert Wolf were arraigned at the Rensselaer County Courthouse Monday afternoon. Court documents allege that both father and son raped and had repeated sexual contact with the 10-year old girl for a period of months in 2008 and 2009.
Police say the girl was acquainted with the Wolf's and that the alleged abuse took place in the men's Lansingburgh apartment.
Both Wolf's have been charged with misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child. In addition, Scott Wolf has been charged with felony predatory sexual assault and Robert Wolf with 1st degree felony course of sexual conduct with a child.
Robert Wolf's attorney is fighting to get youthful offender status for his client due to the time in which the alleged crimes occurred.
This is not Scott Wolf's first run-in with the law. He was arrested back in 2005, following accusations he had been trolling the internet for young girls.
Wolf allegedly shared sexually explicit photos of himself during an online conversation with someone he believed to be a young girl. That "girl" turned out to be someone from Perverted Justice, a website where volunteers pose as underage children and teens with the goal of helping law enforcement catch online sexual predators.
Both father and son are currently in jail. Scott Wolf is said to have no opportunity to post bail at this point in time.
