The grandmother of three boys, allegedly molested by an Angola man was the first to take the stand Wednesday afternoon in Steuben Superior Court. A 12-person jury was selected and seated Wednesday morning where they heard seven felony charges pending against Tylarr James Tagliaferri, age 24, of Angola.
According to the "Herald-Republican," Tagliaferri is charged with three level one felony counts of child molesting, one for each of the children as well as three level three felony counts of child molesting. Additionally he is charged with another level one felony child molesting charge that refers to the use of deadly force because Tagliaferri allegedly threatened his victims with a machete.
Tagliaferri allegedly forced the boys between the ages of six and ten to perform a sex act on him on multiple occasions in his home and garage say court documents. The charges refer to alleged activity between April and August of 2015.
