State police charged Derek J. Bush, 22, of 5545 Linda Place Road, with three counts apiece of third-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child and a single count of third-degree rape.

He was arraigned before Greig Town Justice Owen R. Williams and sent to Lewis County jail, Lowville, with bail set at $3,000 cash or $6,000 bond.
