OSWEGO, N.Y. (WWNY) - An employee from Sandy Creek School District faces criminal charges in connection to incidents that occurred between 2005-2009.

The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office says Martin Scoville, 46, of Lacona, NY has been charged with 1st Degree Rape.

Officials say they became aware of a complaint when members of the Sandy Creek School District alerted the Sheriff’s Office that a former student of Scoville’s claimed to have an inappropriate relationship with Scoville from around 2005 until 2009.

They say an inappropriate relationship began while the victim was a student of Scoville’s and there was an allegation of forcible rape in the early half of 2009.

Sandy Creek superintendent Kyle Faulkner said in a statement posted on the district’s website, “the Sandy Creek Central School District is aware of the allegations regarding an employee who is currently on administrative leave. The District has cooperated with the investigation and will continue to do so as it progresses.”

Scoville was arraigned in Oswego County CAP Court Monday evening.

The Oswego County Sheriff’s Office asks that anyone who may have information about these events, or know of any more victims is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (315) 349-3411.
