Schenectady County man pleads not guilty to raping 11-year-old

Local

The man accused of raping and impregnating an 11-year-old girl in Schenectady County has been indicted on several charges.

Robert Cronin pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning to charges of predatory sexual assault, acting in a manner injurious to a child, and perjury.

Cronin admitted in January to being the father of the girl’s child, but denied raping her, saying the girl became pregnant after borrowing an article of clothing he used to pleasure himself with.
