16 Year Old Charged In Sexual Abuse Case

Full story and MySpace profile:

Village police arrested a high school student Friday afternoon on felony charges of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl.

Phil Zagunis, a 16-year-old sophomore wrestler at Goshen High School, was sent to Orange County Jail Friday evening and released four hours later on $7,500 bail.

Jail officials confirmed he is charged with second-degree aggravated sexual abuse, a class C felony. Inmates are often logged under the most serious charge, and jail officials said they didn’t know whether Zagunis faced any other charges.

Under state law, aggravated sexual assault happens when a person injures another by sticking a finger in the victim’s sexual organ either by force, when the victim isn’t able to consent because of physically helplessness or when the victim is younger than 11 years old.
