New Paltz man indicted for raping underage girl

KINGSTON – The Ulster County grand jury has indicted a New Paltz man on two rape charges for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

Ulster County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Ian Mehrhof in early September. Police said he had contacted the child on Facebook, arranged a meeting and took her to a secluded area of the Town of Gardiner where he had sex with her.

The investigation that led to Mehrhof’s arrest also involved the Ulster County Probation Department and the URGENT Task Force.
