Sheriff: Interlaken man charged with predatory sex assault, rape of child less than 13

Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce reports the arrest of a 34-year-old Interlaken resident on felony predatory sex assault charges following an investigation.

Dana Goodman, 34, of Interlaken was charged with predatory sexual assault, a Class A-II felony; first-degree rape, a Class B felony; and endangering the welfare of a child.

Sheriff Luce says the charges stem from an investigation where it’s alleged he subjected a child less than 13 years old to sexual contact in Covert.



Goodman was initially held at the Seneca County Correctional Facility, but was released on his own recognizance.

An order of protection was filed on behalf of the victim. Goodman is set to appear in Covert Town Court on January 10th.

Sheriff Luce says that Goodman’s released was in compliance with the new bail reform laws as the least restrictive non-monetary condition imposed by the court.
