Charging documents allege Corry, of Kanosh, assaulted a woman he supervised at work.

Police became aware of the case Aug. 21 after authorities say several people came upon the pair after one of the alleged assaults and found the victim visibly upset. Police were contacted, and Corry fled the area that night. He later surrendered to police and agreed to speak with detectives.

Authorities say he admitted post-Miranda to sexually assaulting the woman on one occasion despite her repeatedly saying no.

The woman said several such incidents were repeated over the years starting in 2015 when the man managed to get her alone with him.

    Glad to see he didn’t use his position of authority to take advantage of someone.
