  • Conviction date: 5/29/2008
  • Criminal Sexual Act-1st Degree
  • Offender’s age at conviction: 27
  • Victim Age: 36


A registered sex offender from Kingston has pleaded guilty to raping a 13-year-old girl, the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.

Jerome Fischer, 27, formerly of 81 Cedar St., pleaded guilty Tuesday in Ulster County Court before County Judge J. Michael Bruhn to charges of felony rape and violating the conditions of his probation.

Fischer was arrested Dec. 22, 2008, by Kingston police on charges he supplied the 13-year-old victim with liquor and beer during the evening of Dec. 21 until she became unconscious, according to a press release from the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office. The release said the victim awoke sometime later in the early morning hours of Dec. 22 as Fischer was raping her.

The release said Fischer was a registered sex offender on felony probation at the time of the rape.

In exchange for his pleading guilty, Fischer is receive consecutive sentences of five years in state prison on the probation violation and six years in prison on the rape charge, the release said. The release said Fischer will also have five years of parole supervision upon his release from prison and will be required to continue to register as a sexual offender. His new risk level will be determined at sentencing, which is scheduled for March 26, the release said.

District Attorney Holley Carnright said the swift resolution to the case was the result of the prompt outcry of the victim and her family, as well as the thorough investigation by the Kingston police.

“Any delay in reporting a crime of this nature does irreparable damage to the ability to successfully prosecute the case,” Carnright said in the press release. “The sooner an investigation begins, the more immediately evidence can be collected and interviews be conducted. The victim, her family and the Kingston police department detectives should be commended for their actions in this case.”

“25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”
