Hudson Valley Man Sentenced Again For Having Sex With Teen
A Hudson Valley man was sentenced for the second time for having sex with a local teenage girl.
On Wednesday, in Westchester County Court, Clint Edwards of New Windsor was sentenced to seven years in state prison with 10 years post-release supervision for engaging in a sexual act with a child under the age of 15 in Port Chester in June 2017.
Edwards pleaded guilty in October 2018 to criminal sexual act.
Edwards met the child via social media, engaged in the sexual act in the child’s apartment building then took her to his residence in New Windsor, officials say.
In response to a missing person’s report for the child, the FBI and Port Chester Police tracked the young girl to Edward's family home in New Windsor where he was arrested days later.
Edwards’ sentence will run concurrently to a 20-year sentence on a federal case involving the same child victim.
Unrelated to these cases, Edwards was also sentenced Wednesday to 1.5-3 years in state prison for attempted assault, a violent felony, involving another inmate in the county jail in January. He also pleaded guilty to a second count of attempted assault involving an incident with a correction officer in the county jail in October 2018. That sentencing is scheduled for June 11. All terms will run concurrently with the federal case.
Edwards will be required to register as a sex offender.
