Tuscarora Reservation man must move to comply with rape probation

LOCKPORT – A Tuscarora Indian Reservation man will have to move as a condition of probation for third-degree rape, Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III ordered Thursday.

Murphy placed Clint F. Farnham on 10 years' probation for having sex with a 16-year-old girl in September and October 2015. The age of sexual consent in New York is 17, making Farnham guilty of statutory rape, although Assistant District Attorney Cheryl L. Nichols acknowledged no force was involved.

Defense attorney James J. Faso Jr. said Farnham, 25, of Mount Hope Road, lives across from the Tuscarora School and the reservation community center, where he works.
