Opening Statements Expected Wednesday In Rape Trial

Posted: Updated:

A jury has been seated in the trial of a Massena man accused of raping a 10 year old more than two decades ago and then raping a 34 year old woman 12 years later.

Joseph Breault, 64, was arrested in August after a sealed indictment charging him with those crimes was opened.

He is accused of raping the 10 year old in the summer of 1996.

He is accused of the attempted rape of the 34 year old in the summer of 2007 and then raping her the following summer and again in the summer of 2009 or 2010. He also faces a charge of predatory sexual assault.

Twelve jurors and two alternates were seated Tuesday.

Opening statements will begin Wednesday.
