A 32-year-old Tupper Lake man was sentenced to four years in state prison last week for the rape of a teenage girl.
Travis K. Borden was taken into custody in May 2009 following accusations he raped his live-in girlfriend’s 15-year-old daughter. He was originally charged with third-degree criminal sexual act, third-degree rape, endangering the welfare of a child, and unlawfully dealing with a child.
Tupper Lake Village Police arrested Borden following a complaint from a family member of the victim.
In April, Borden pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of third-degree criminal sexual act. Last week, Franklin County Court Judge Penelope Clute sentenced him to four years in state prison with 10 years of post-release supervision.
