A Port Jervis man pleaded guilty to an attempted rape charge on Monday, admitting that he tried to have sex “with an individual who was less than 11 years old,” Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler announced.
Hoovler said he will recommend a 15-year prison sentence for James Pospisil, 45, to be followed by 15 years of post-release supervision.
“This defendant’s admitted conduct is a vile and unspeakable act of abuse of an innocent child,” said Hoovler in prepared remarks. “I hope that the significant sentence the defendant faces will provide a degree of closure to the victim and will ensure that this defendant is unable to harm others.
Pospisil is expected to be sentenced on Sept. 17.
