Binghamton man sentenced for attempted rape of 8-year-old girl


BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (WIVT) -A Binghamton man will face prison time for attempted sexual acts with a child.

Joseph Henehan will face 10 years in jail for attempted rape of an 8-year-old girl.

Henehan had attempted to arrange a meet-up through social media with the child for which he planned a sexual encounter.

“These despicable and loathsome actions by the defendant deserve nothing more than a lengthy State prison sentence to protect our community,” District Attorney Mike Korchak said.

Following his release, Henehan will face 15 years of post-release supervision.
