A 32-year-old Cobleskill Level III registered state sexual offender was arrested Wednesday after an investigation into complaints from two former coworkers.

Joshua Gelber was charged with two counts of forcible touching -- misdemeanors. His coworkers at a Springfield establishment complained in April that Gelber inappropriately touched them in February and March. After an investigation, an arrest warrant was obtained in June, and Gelber surrendered himself at the Otsego County Sheriff's Office where he was arrested. He was arraigned in Cherry Valley Town Court and was released on his own recognizance to appear in Springfield Town Court next week. If convicted he faces up to two years in Otsego County jail.
