The 21-year-old Corning man accused of sexually abusing two young children was in Steuben County Court Tuesday to hear evidence in the case against him.
Brian Griswold is accused of having oral sex with a toddler, taking pictures of the encounter and saving it on his cell phone and computer. Griswold, nor his attorney, denied the allegations, which will now be presented as evidence. His case is being presented as a trial by facts, which means evidence in the case is presented without opposition.
Griswold, if found guilty by the judge, will get a plea deal of five years in prison, and five years post release supervision; he'll also be a registered sex offender.
In an unrelated matter, Griswold admitted to taking sexually explicit photos of young girls at the Corning YMCA in 2009 where he worked in the Child Watch Center. He remains charged at the federal level with the alleged crimes at the Y. He's been indicted, but no trial date has been set.
