Plattsburgh, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a state trooper assigned to a station in northern New York has been charged with raping two women.
State police say Trooper Trevor Donah, 32, of Plattsburgh was arrested around 4 p.m. Tuesday while off duty, and charged with two counts of first-degree rape. Police say the victims were two female acquaintances.
The arrest was made by the state police Bureau of Investigation.
Donah was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court. He's being held in the Clinton County Jail on $50,000 bail.
A judge has appointed the district attorney in neighboring Franklin County, Derek Champagne, as special prosecutor in this case.
Donah is a five-year veteran of the state police assigned to the Plattsburgh station.
He has been suspended without pay.
It couldn't be determined if Donah has a lawyer.
