Guilty of Sexual Charges

A student teacher at a Connecticut deaf school has pleaded guilty to charges of having sex with a minor in Dewitt, New York (east of Syracuse). Micah S. Brown will get a one to three year sentence for admitting his guily in county court and may get as much as 10 more years in federal court. State police arrested Brown after a 16-year-old girl said he met her online and then in person at her home in Syracuse area while her parents where gone. The girl said Brown gave her alcohol, marijuana, and had sex with her. Her parents found liquor bottles when they returned and she confessed to what had happened. Police then set up a sting operation where Brown thought he was meeting the girl again. Brown was a graduate student at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at the Rochester Institute of Technology at the time of his arrest. He was serving as a student teacher at the American School for the Deaf in Connecticut.
