Official: Amish girls sexually abused in abduction

August 17, 2014

CANTON, N.Y. (AP) — A prosecutor says two young Amish sisters were sexually abused after they were abducted from a roadside farm stand in northern New York.

St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain disclosed the alleged abuse Saturday — a day after a couple was charged with first-degree kidnapping in the case.

The county's sheriff says Stephen Howells Jr. and Nicole Vaisey were prowling for easy targets and may have planned to abduct other children.

The 7-year-old and 12-year-old sisters were abducted Wednesday in Oswegatchie and were set free by their captors Thursday.

The Associated Press generally does not identify people who may be victims of sexual abuse.

A lawyer for Vaisey says they're reviewing the evidence. There was no answer at the law office representing Howells.
