Maxwell “Scott” Coapman - Repeat Sex Offender - Charged witih Child Rape - Again

The trial for a registered sex offender charged with sexually abusing a child started in Cayuga County Court Tuesday. According to an indictment filed with the court, Maxwell “Scott” Coapman, 62, is charged with sexually abusing and raping a 12-year-old girl, a course of conduct that continued for almost two years.
Most of the incidents are alleged to have happened in Aurelius between June 5, 2008, and Feb. 2, 2009. Coapman, of 528 Turnpike Road, Cayuga, was designated a level-two sex offender after he was convicted in 1990 of two counts of second-degree felony rape. The victim in that case was also a child.

Level-two sex offenders are considered to pose a moderate risk of re-offending.

Coapman is charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sex act, nine counts of second-degree criminal sex act and two counts of first-degree rape, all felonies. Coapman is also charged with eight counts of sexual abuse and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, all misdemeanors.
