Report: Cortland man sentenced in rape of St. Lawrence County teen

CANTON, N.Y. — A Cortland man who previously pleaded guilty in the rape of an upstate New York teen last summer has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Christopher G. Wing, 31, of Cortland, was sentenced Monday in St. Lawrence County Court, according to the Watertown Daily Times. He was also sentenced to 15 years of post-release supervision.

Wing was forced to register as a Level 3 sex offender after being convicted of second-degree rape stemming from an incident involving a 14-year-old girl in Cortland in February 2008, the newspaper reports. He was also sentenced to one to three years in state prison.

On June 27, Wing once again engaged in a sexual act with a 15-year-old girl, this time in the village of Massena, according to police.

During the sentencing proceeding Monday, St. Lawrence County District Attorney Frank R. Cositore reportedly told Judge Derek P. Champagne that Wing is "an adult going after young girls," and has "ruined several lives with his action."

Judge Champagne then listed off Wing's criminal history dating back to 2002 before delivering the sentence.
