There are new charges against the Albany County man accused of sexually abusing a young girl.

John Ferrara, 54, was arraigned on a new indictment, accusing him of engaging in sexual conduct against a child over nearly two and half years.

The child was between the ages of 5 and 8 at the time.

The alleged assault took place at a home-based daycare in Green Island run by Ferrara’s girlfriend.

Ferrara was originally scheduled to go to trial last week, but his attorney Lee Kindlon pointed out an error in the original indictment and the judge dismissed the case.

However, the district attorney got another indictment.

Ferrara is free under the supervision of the probation department.
