Man Pleads Guilty to Rape Charges in Wyoming County Court

February 7, 2012 Updated Feb 7, 2012 at 4:58 PM EDT

According to a news release from the Wyoming County District Attorney's Office, a 20-year-old man on Tuesday pleaded guilty to one felony count of Attempted Rape in the First Degree and two felony counts of Rape in the Third Degree.

Scott Marshall is scheduled to be sentenced on March 6 in Wyoming County Court.

The charges stem from three separate rapes that occurred with three separate females under the age of 19 years of age.  The three incidents occurred on May 6, 2011 in Warsaw, June 24-28, 2011 in Warsaw and September 11, 2011 in Covington.  The three victims did not know each other prior to these events.
 
“It became clear from the evidence in this case that Mr. Marshall had a common scheme on how to befriend these young ladies.  Even though the young ladies did not know each other there were aspects of their cases that showed a pattern.  I commend each of the victims for their courage in coming forward to tell the State Police investigator what had happened.  Hopefully this plea will begin the healing process for the young ladies and their families,” Wyoming County District Attorney Donald O’Geen said in the news release.
