Oswego County man charged with rape


ORWELL —State police arrested an Orwell man Wednesday afternoon on a charge of second-degree rape.

Cody T. Pruett, 21, of 848 County Route 52, was arrested at his residence at 1:50 p.m. Wednesday and charged with rape as well as endangering the welfare of a child.

Because of the nature of the case, police did not comment on the specifics of the alleged incident, but the charge indicates the victim was 15 or younger.

He was arraigned in Town Court and sent to the Oswego County jail, Oswego.

Pruett was accused by Oswego County sheriff’s deputies Nov. 29 of four counts of second-degree rape, one count of second-degree criminal sex act and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child. In that report, he allegedly had sexual contact with a girl under the age of 15 over a six-month period.
