RAPE - MASSENA - Massena-based state police charged James A. Parrotte, 21, of Burney Ave, Massena, with a felony count of third-degree rape and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child Sunday stemming from an investigation into an incident that allegedly took place on the evening of May 3 in the town of Brasher.
