Virginia man accused of rape in Malone

A 22-year-old Virginia man is accused of raping an underage victim in Franklin County.

Malone-based state police arrested Donald J. Gokey on Wednesday and charged him with first-degree rape.

Investigators say Gokey was taken into custody for allegedly having sex with an underage victim. The incident reportedly occurred in the town of Constable in March.

Police say Gokey was apprehended in Virginia as a fugitive from justice and transported back to New York, where he was arraigned in Constable Town Court before Justice Diane Wisnesky.

He was remanded to Franklin County Jail on $100,000 cash bail pending further court action.

No additional information was immediately available Thursday afternoon and the investigation is considered ongoing.
