Former security officer from Seneca Falls faces bench trial for sex abuse

Yates County Judge Jason Cook will issue a verdict at a later date after a recent bench trial of former Keuka College security officer Stephen Hilyer.

It all wrapped up this past week in Yates County Court, according to District Attorney Todd Casella.

Hilyer faces a felony charge of sexual abuse.

He’s a Seneca Falls resident who was taken into custody by the Yates County Sheriff’s Office in August 2019 after allegedly sexually assaulting an employee of the school.

Investigators said at the time that Hilyer was employed by a private security company who covered the College’s security detail. He held state certifications at the time.

Hilyer was fired after his arrest.
