A Riverhead teenager charged with first-degree rape last year after he engaged in sexual intercourse with a girl less than 11 years old was sentenced to 10 years probation Friday at the Suffolk County criminal court in Riverhead.

Bryan Umana, who was 18 when arrested in April 2016, was considered a youthful offender in Justice Barbara Kahn’s decision on Friday. He had pleaded guilty in January to attempted rape of a person less than 11 years old, a felony. The plea covered a five-count indictment that included two first-degree rape charges, two first-degree sexual abuse charges and a charge of endangering the welfare of a child, according to online court documents.

The sentence, issued by Justice Barbara Kahn, includes a permanent stay-away order under which Mr. Umana will have no further contact with the child, as well as sex offender conditions of supervision, though he is not required to register as a sex offender, the judge said.

A spokesperson for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office previously told the News-Review that Mr. Umana was 17 years old at the time the alleged incident occurred.
