A 37 year old Binghamton man is going to prison for 17 and a half years for raping a child under the age of 13.

The Broome County District Attorney’s office says Chad Winans admitted raping the child and pleaded guilty March 17th.

In addition to prison, Winans will be on parole for ten years.

New York State Police arrested Winans March 2nd and charged him with rape, criminal sexual act, aggravated sexual abuse or course of sexual conduct against a child under the age of 13.

District Attorney Steve Cornwell called the incident “a vile and lascivious attack on an impressionable child.”
