Chamell Hampton age 36 pleaded guilty in Broome County Court to Rape, in the second degree, a Class D
Felony. Hampton was a Broome County Sheriff’s Correction Officer at the time of the September 2014 attack.

By pleading guilty, Hampton admitted engaging in sexual intercourse with an adult female, who was incapable of consent by reason of being physically helpless.

“We are committed to fighting for justice for victims of crimes, and taking their attackers off the streets,” said District Attorney Steve Cornwell. Hampton will serve four years in New York State Prison, with three years post-release supervision. Hampton will be sentenced on December 13th.
