Brian O. Angelo, 51, also known as DJ IROC, of 51 Hendrick Hudson Way, turned himself in Tuesday to Colonie police on an Albany County Court indictment, charging him with predatory sexual assault against a child.

If convicted of the charge, he would face up to 25 years to life in prison.

Angelo is accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl known to him on multiple occasions between February and October of 2009, police and prosecutors said.

Angelo was arraigned in Albany County Court on the new charge Tuesday afternoon and ordered held on $50,000 bail.

State police said then that the victims’ ages ranged from 8 to 14 at the times of the abuse. 

A conviction on one of the top Rensselaer County counts would mean up to 25 years in prison.

Both the state police in January and Colonie police Tuesday asked that anyone with information about Angelo to contact police. Colonie investigators can be reached at 518-783-2744.
