WAPPINGERS FALLS, N.Y. -- An investigation of incidents dating as far back as 1997 has resulted in the arrest of a 61-year-old man by State Police in Wappinger barracks on sexual abuse charges.

Joseph J. Cacciatore of Cary, N.C., was charged Wednesday with two counts of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in the Second Degree, a Class D felony.

An investigation indicated that Cacciatore engaged in multiple acts of sexual conduct against two victims under the age of thirteen between 1997 and 2005, state police said.
