A St. Lawrence County grand jury has indicted a Gouverneur man on rape charges involving a teenage girl. Forty nine year old Mark Hartle is facing 30 counts including first degree rape and first degree criminal sex act with a 15 year old girl last summer in the Towns of Rossie and Gouverneur. Hartle was arrested earlier this year and remains jailed without bail. Hartle is one of five men who were accused in the infamous Casablanca rape case from October 1991 in Gouverneur. He was later acquitted by a jury in that case in 1996.
