A 31-year-old Utica man has been indicted on several charges for the alleged sexual abuse of two minors.

The case was investigated by New York State Police and the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center, leading to the arrest Tyreek James.

Authorities say they began investigating the allegations in March of last year and believe James sexually abused two females under the age of 17 between 2018 and 2021, police say. That led to a case being presented to an Oneida County Grand Jury last month.

James is charged with:

  • Sexual Abuse 1st degree, a class “D” Felony
  • Criminal Sexual Act 3rd degree, a class “E” Felony
  • Sexual Abuse 2nd degree, a class “A” Misdemeanor
  • Sexual Abuse 3rd degree, a class “B” Misdemeanor.

As of this posting, James was being held pending arraignment on the felony charges.
