Tohafjian pleads guilty to rape charge in Seneca County Court

The Seneca County man on trial for rape, who had already been convicted of murder – pleaded guilty on Wednesday to the most-recent charge in Seneca County Court.

District Attorney Mark Sinkiewicz said Emerson “John” Tohafjian, of Varick, pleaded guilty in county court to first-degree rape.

He is scheduled to be sentenced March 5th, according to the Finger Lakes Times.

Sinkiewicz said Tohafjian took an Alford plea, where a defendant doesn’t admit to a crime but concedes he could be convicted at trial, according to the Times reporting.
