Steuben County Legislator takes plea deal, will not resign despite sex trafficking allegations

A Steuben County legislator implicated in an alleged sex trafficking ring has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Legislator Steve Maio (D- Corning) said he will not resign, despite calls to do so from both Democrats and Republicans.

In August 2020, Maio was charged by New York State Police with soliciting a prostitute. Maio was then indicted by a Steuben County grand jury on the felony charge of enterprise corruption related to an alleged sex trafficking ring.
