On July 15th, 2009, the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division arrested James R. Galpin Jr, age 48 of 46 McLean Valley Rd Owego for 20 Counts of Criminal Sexual Act 2nd degree, Class D Felonies, 1 Count of Sexual Abuse 2nd degree, 2 Counts of Forcible Touching, and 4 Counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, misdemeanors. James R. Galpin Jr. was arraigned in the Town of Owego Court by Justice Robert Henning and was remanded to the Tioga County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bail bond. The charges stem from a month long investigation into Galpin’s association with juveniles. James R. Galpin Jr., who is a level three sex offender, was initially arrested on July 8th, 2009 for a violation of the Sex Offender Registration Act because he failed to register his screen name with the Sheriff’s Office as required by law. Further investigation revealed multiple victims of sexual abuse.
