Former Corrections Officer from Batavia sentenced to jail for sex abuse.
A former corrections officer at the Albion Correctional Facility has been sentenced to jail and a lengthy term of probation after pleading guilty last month to first-degree sexual abuse for a sexual act involving a woman incapable of giving consent.
43 year old Adam Brokaw of Northern Boulevard Batavia appeared in Genesee County Court yesterday afternoon where he was sentenced to six months in the Genesee County Jail and 10 years’ probation on the Class D felony conviction.
Brokaw was accused of sexually abusing a woman that had passed out from drinking at a party at his residence.
He will also have to register as Sex Offender for the rest of his life.

The Orleans County D-A says that two misdemeanor charges were all that could be brought against an Albion man in the death two years ago of an 11-month old boy.
29 year old Nicholas Monacelli was charged this week with Reckless Endangerment and Child Endangerment in the death of Damon Carter in July of 2017.
D-A Joseph Cardone said Monacelli was caring for the child of his girlfriend when the baby slipped from his grasp during a bath.
The child was not Manacelli’s.
Cardone told The Daily News the investigation revealed Monacelli’s actions were not intentional.
Monacelli has been released on $1,000 bail.
There could soon be a ban on the sale of dogs from puppy mills in New York.
The bill introduced by Queens State Senator Michael Gianaris would cover the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits from unregulated breeding facilities.
Gianaris says puppy mill animals are mistreated from birth, and often develop behavioral or physical health problems later in life despite their high price tags.
He has some star power backing his bill. Soprano’s actress Edie Falco, took part in Gianaris’ news conference Friday in New York City.
The Buffalo Bills have added a player they hope boosts their defense.
They chose University of Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver with the ninth overall pick in Thursday night’s NFL Draft.
Oliver is likely to be a starter on opening day when the Bills visit the New York Jets.
