Charges: Couple took, intended to hurt Amish girls

Charges: Couple took, intended to hurt Amish girls | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) â€" A northern New York couple was arraigned late Friday on charges they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse two Amish sisters after abducting them from a roadside farm stand. The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office issued a statement late Friday saying the arrests of Howells and Vaisey "no doubt saved young children from future abuse." "The suspects agreed to go to the sheriff's office to be interviewed earlier today and they were arrested after those interviews," Rain said. The Associated Press generally does not identify victims of alleged sexual abuse. The 7-year-old and 12-year-old vanished Wednesday evening in Oswegatchie, touching off a massive search in the farming community near the Canadian border.
