Guilderland woman charged with sexual abuse of 11-year-old girl

GUILDERLAND — A 55-year-old Guilderland woman was arrested Tuesday for sexually abusing an 11-year-old girl.

Reverend Carolyn Lorrain Wilson was charged with second-degree sexual abuse, and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, after the victim’s family contacted police, according to Lieutenant Daniel McNally, with the Guilderland Police. 

The alleged abuse took place over a period of weeks at Wilson’s home in Guilderland Center — the Park Guilderland Apartments, 461 Route 146, Building 4, Apartment 317, McNally said.

Wilson uses the title “Reverend”, but is not known to be affiliated with any church, according to a release sent out by the Guilderland Police Department.

McNally said she had no criminal record, and no other victims had come forward.

She was sent to Albany County’s jail on $5,000 bail, which had not been posted as of late Wednesday afternoon, said McNally. She is set to appear before Judge Denise Randall in Guilderland Town Court today, Aug. 4, at 5:30 p.m.

Anyone with information about similar incidents should call Officer Nicholas Ingle at 356-1501.
