St. Lawrence County grand jury indicts man on rape charge


CANTON — A Brasher Falls man has been indicted by a St. Lawrence County grand jury for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl.

Kyle E. Simon, 19, of 266 Driscoll Road, faces a charge of second-degree rape in connection with the Nov. 21 incident. He also was indicted on one count of endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly giving the girl marijuana.

Also indicted on Thursday:

■ Jason P. Morgan, 30, of 165 Mill Road, Norfolk, was indicted in connection with the alleged theft of several guns last summer from a home on County Route 39 in Norfolk.

Investigators said Mr. Morgan was involved with thefts on at least two dates in August and September.

The grand jury indicted him on three counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and four counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

Indictment documents list four different .22 caliber pistols that were loaded when they allegedly were found in Mr. Morgan’s possession on Sept. 14.

■ Dejuan J. Butler, 22, of Lumberton, N.C., was indicted in connection with an alleged Feb. 28 drug sale in Ogdensburg.

Investigators said Mr. Butler allegedly sold cocaine to another person on Feb. 28. He faces charges of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in that case.

Mr. Butler also was indicted on one count of false personation after he allegedly lied to Ogdensburg police about his name on April 26, telling officers he was David J. Barksdale of Atlanta, Ga.

The indictment did not make reference to a number of other charges lodged against Mr. Butler on April 26, when police said they found 78 bags of crack cocaine hidden in Mr. Butler’s rectum following a traffic stop.

■ Robert A. Rule, 45, of 4 Hoadley Road, North Bangor, was indicted on two counts of driving while intoxicated in connection with a May 5, 2012 incident in the town of Brasher.

Investigators said tests showed that Mr. Rule’s blood alcohol content was 0.15 while operating a 1995 Ford on Dullea Road. A BAC of 0.08 percent or higher constitutes intoxication under state law.

Mr. Rule was previously convicted of felony DWI in 2003 in Franklin County, according to indictment documents.
