KINGSTON — Sexually abused on an almost daily basis by a father and his son, two sisters devised a plan to show proof of those crimes, a police investigator said.

The girls last summer secretly filmed the father sexually molesting the younger sister and then gave the film to leaders of their Harriman church the next day, Kingston Police Department Investigator Sam Bolden said.

    Good Wednesday.  We will be much warmer today with highs in the mid to upper 80s.  You can expect nice outdoor weather with plenty of sunshine and low humidity sticking around one more day. Thursday will not be as warm with highs in the low 80s, but it will be more humid with a chance for some showers in the afternoon.
