A Port Byron man faces multiple charges of sex crimes against children as well as a pet.
Auburn police say they've charged Stephen Lane with first-degree counts of criminal sex act and sexual abuse, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and sexual misconduct. Officers report that between August and October, Lane had sexual contact with a child younger than 11 on several occasions, displayed other sexual behavior as well, and even engaged in sexual contact with a dog.
An investigation began when one child reported Lane's acts to an adult. Lane is now in the Cayuga County Jail without bail.
