Floyd Slater, Jr. Sentenced

Friday, May 4, 2018

District Attorney Matthew Van Houten announced today that Floyd Slater, Jr., 26, of Brooktondale, New York, appeared in Tompkins County Court today and was sentenced to a term of six (6) years in State Prison in connection with his conviction for the crime of Attempted Burglary in the Second Degree and Public Lewdness.  Additionally, the Court imposed a period of five (5) years of Post Release Supervision.  Attempted Burglary in the Second Degree, the top charge, is a Class D Felony in New York State, punishable by up to seven years in prison. 

On February 15, 2018, Cornell Police officers responded to a dormitory on campus, where the defendant was reported to have been masturbating in the women’s bathroom in front of a female resident. Slater was later identified to be the perpetrator and was charged on March 6, 2018.

Judge John C. Rowley presided over the case. Assistant District Attorney Diane Lama prosecuted the case and Ithaca attorney Jerome Mayersak represented the defendant.

Van Houten said, “Based upon the totality of the circumstances and the pattern of this individual’s behavior, six years in prison is an appropriate sentence.  This resolution promotes the safety and well-being of the community.”

The District Attorney’s Office recognizes and thanks the agencies who conducted the investigation and assisted in the prosecution of this case, specifically the Cornell University Police Department and the Ithaca Police Department.
