Norfolk man charged with sex abuse of minor


NORFOLK — Brandon D. Murphy, 19, of 2009 Sober St., was charged by state police at 2:49 p.m. Friday with second-degree sexual abuse of an individual under 14 years old, tampering with evidence, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful possession of marijuana and two counts of second-degree criminal sale of marijuana.

Police said that when they responded to a domestic dispute in Norfolk between a mother and her 13-year-old daughter, the mother told them she received a call from her daughter’s school on Friday, informing her that her daughter had been absent for a few days in a row.

The daughter told police that she and a 12-year-old friend stayed overnight at Mr. Murphy’s residence from Wednesday to Thursday.

Police said the daughter told her mother that she was staying at her friend’s house and that she met her friend at Norfolk Library, where both girls were picked up by Mr. Murphy.

Police said that he sold the girls marijuana, and that when police arrived at Mr. Murphy’s residence, it was clear that he had tried to destroy evidence by burning marijuana in a wood-burning stove.

He was held without bail at St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, and is scheduled to appear in Norfolk Town Court.
