Johnstown officer accused of rape due in court


JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. -- A Johnstown police officer charged with rape is due in court Thursday.

Adam Schwabrow, 32, was arrested by his own department in mid-September on allegations that he had sex with an underage girl. 

Police say the alleged rape was not forcible; however the female involved was not old enough to give consent. Details of the crime or how long he and the alleged victim knew eachother are not being released.

Schwabrow, a nine year veteran and K-9 officer for the department, was arrested at the police department Friday morning. He posted bail and is due back in court next week. The District Attorney is asking for a special prosecutor to handle the case because of Schwabrow's position.

If convicted, he could face the possibility of one to four years in state prison.
