BROADALBIN -- A Broadalbin man was arrested Wednesday evening for allegedly having sex with an under-aged female in a car.
According to New York State Police, James A. Vanderwerker, 20, was charged with misdemeanor sexual misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child after Mayfield troopers reportedly observed him having sexual intercourse with an under-aged female in the back seat of a car on Krunz Road in the town of Broadalbin.
State Police spokesman Mark Cepiel said the arrest took place at approximately 10:50 p.m. and Vanderwerker admitted to the troopers that his actions were illegal.
Cepiel said the girl was younger than 17 years of age, which is the age of consent in New York state. He added he could not release more information about the arrest because she is considered a minor.
Vanderwerker is scheduled to be arraigned on these charges Thursday in Broadalbin court.
