CLAVERACK, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve charged four people in eastern New York with physically and sexually abusing multiple underage children.

State police say a two-year joint investigation with Columbia County prosecutors and Child Protective Services officials uncovered a sex abuse ring that victimized numerous children.

The suspects include a 45-year-old man from Claverack, a 30-year-old woman from Hillsdale, a 27-year-old man from Cairo (KAY’-roh) and a 58-year-old man from Copake.

The charges against them sex abuse and promoting a sexual performance by a child.

All four were arraigned Tuesday in Columbia County Court and sent to the county jail.

State police say their investigation is continuing.
