Tompkins County, Ny (WBNG Binghamton) A retired New York State Police investigator has been sentenced on felony sex charges.

Randolph B. Stark, 61, was sentenced Wednesday in Tompkins County Court on one count of first degree sex abuse, a class D felony.

Stark was convicted of subjecting a woman to non-consensual sexual contact on May 31, 2013, to June 1, 2013.

Stark was sentenced to one year of local incarceration at the Tompkins County Jail and an order of protection was issued on behalf of the victim. He will not serve any time in state prison.

The state requested a sentence of two years state prison and 10 years post-release supervision, with the maximum sentence being seven years plus 10 years of probation upon his release.

The court stated that supervision is unnecessary in this case, but Stark will be required to register as a sex offender.

The court granted Stark’s request to surrender himself at 9 a.m., April 21 to the Tompkins County Jail.

Assistant District Attorney Wendy Franklin prosecuted the case and Ithaca attorney John A. Stevens represented Stark. The Honorable John C. Rowley presided.
