Cortland man accused of rape, incest following investigation

A Cortlandville man was arrested on a number of charges in Cortland County following an investigation into rape and incest.

Michael Waite, 38, of Cortlandville was arrested after a sex abuse investigation found that he had ‘inappropriate contact’ with a 14-year-old girl, deputies said.



Waite was charged with two counts of second-degree rape, second-degree criminal sex act, second-degree incest, fifth-degree criminal sale of marijuana, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Deputies say that additional charges are possible. At this time, Waite is held at the Cortland County Jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 secured bond.
