Terrence McNair Arrested on Sex Charges

A former St. Joseph’s and Nyack High School basketball standout was arrested last week on sex abuse charges.

Terrence McNair, 18, of Valley Cottage was arrested for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a girl under 15 years of age “sometime between October 2012 and June 2013,” according to Clarkstown PD. The sexual acts were performed at his Valley Cottage residence, police allege.

The police conducted a two month investigation into the accusation before making charges. CPD said that McNair is entitled to youthful offender status so limited information can be released.

McNair was charged with criminal sexual act 2nd (felony).  He was arraigned in Clarkstown Justice Court where he was remanded to the Rockland County Correctional facility in lieu of $1,500 bail.  McNair is due back in court on March 3, 2014.

McNair comes from a proud sports family that has produced many high school and college athletic standouts, especially in basketball.

McNair turned 18 in April of 2013 and CPD said he would be charged for offenses committed when he was 18. This statement contradicts police prior statement of a timeline of between “October 2012 and June 2013,” as McNair was 17-years-old the first several months of that timeline.
