A 72-year-old Marathon man, Marshal O. Morehouse, is facing charges for alleged sexual abuse following an investigation in the Town of Lisle.

On May 24, 2024, the Broome County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a 14-year-old victim from the Town of Lisle, detailing instances of sexual contact with Morehouse. Responding to the information, investigators collaborated with Child Protective Services to ensure the victim's safety and provide a secure residence while the investigation unfolded.
