WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WFLA/CNN) – A New York man will spend the next 10 years on probation after he plead guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl he met while driving her school bus.
According to the Watertown Daily Times, Shane Piche, 25, will not spend any time in prison after registering as a Level one sex offender, meaning Piche is considered to be at minimal risk of committing the crime again.
He’ll be a felon for the rest of his life. He’s on the sex offender registry for a long time, maybe not the rest of his life because of the level. But this isn’t something that didn’t cause him pain and this isn’t something that didn’t have consequences.”
-Piche’s defense attorney Eric Swartz
The Watertown Daily Times says Piche is not allowed to be alone with anyone under 17 years old, although there were some exceptions approved.
