State court rejects Cayuga County rapist’s appeal

A mid-level state appellate court has rejected the appeal of a Brutus man who was convicted of two counts of third-degree rape in Cayuga County.

Following a guilty plea in 2015, Andrew C. Laury was sentenced to two years in prison and five years post-release supervision. At the time, Laury admitted to having a sexual relationship with two minors in January 2013 and July 2014. The victims were both 15 years old.

Laury appealed his case, claiming that the court failed to advise him that his plea would result in a parole violation. The 39-year-old had been convicted of two counts of third-degree burglary in 2013.
