An Otsego County Court judge has sentenced Anthony C. Schorer to 10 years probation.  The 32-year-old Burlington man copped a plea to get a reduced sentence.

Schorer pled guilty to a second-degree criminal sexual act against a child. That’s a class C felony.  The original charge was a more serious class B felony.  In New York the maximum sentence for a class C felony is 15 years in prison. The max for a class B felony is 25 years behind bars.

“It went from a class B felony to a class C felony,” Otsego County District Attorney John Muehl said in a statement received by CNY News. “It was the resolution we wanted.”

State Police arrested Schorer on Jan. 4, and his brother, Timothy J. Schorer, 33, of Hartwick on Jan. 11.  At the time of their arrest the brothers were charged with first-degree sexual conduct against a child.  They were jailed following their arrest.

Timothy Schorer is due in court on June 24th. He has not yet entered a plea, D.A. Muehl said.  The alleged crimes happened between 2003 and 2010 when the victim was between the ages of 5 and 11 and the Schorer brothers were between the ages of 14 and 20, according to Muehl.

"It is not unusual for a victim of sexual abuse to come forward years after the crime has happened," Muehl said following the arrests. “There is no statute of limitations for victims.”
