Amsterdam woman charged with rape

A 36-year-old Amsterdam woman was charged late last week with rape.

Kelly Spratt, of 56 Arnold Ave., was arrested March 1 in the city of Amsterdam and was charged with third-degree rape, a class E felony.

Det. Lt. Kurt Conroy, of the Amsterdam Police Department, said Tuesday that the charge stems from a case that the department began investigating in November 2012.

Conroy said the incident involved an underage male victim.

Spratt was held for arraignment in Amsterdam City Court and appeared back in court on Tuesday.
