  • BATH | Jury selection wrapped up Monday in the trial of Jordan Frysinger, a former Corning Hawks athlete charged in the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl in 2012.
    Opening statements will begin today in the case. Frysinger faces three charges of attempted first-degree rape and one charge of first-degree criminal sexual act. All four charges are felonies.
    The attempted first-degree rape charges carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. The first-degree criminal sexual act charge carries at maximum of 25 years.
    The case is being tried in Steuben County Court by Judge Peter Bradstreet, and prosecuted by Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo, who was brought in after Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker removed himself from the case.
    Frysinger is accused of sexually assaulting a girl who passed out after consuming alcohol at a May 19, 2012 post-prom party. The party was hosted at a Keuka Lake cottage belonging to the Frysinger family.
    Frysinger's parents, Charles and Sharon Frysinger, pleaded guilty to hosting the underage drinking party and were sentenced to probation and community service.
    Also charged in connection with the incident was Cedric Hairston, who pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless endangerment and received probation. State police said he also had sex with the unconscious girl.
