A former Town of Trenton supervisor has been sentenced to two years in prison for sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy.

A judge in Oneida County Court sentenced 53-year-old Mark Scheidelman in Utica. In May, a jury convicted him of first-degree sexual abuse. State police arrested Scheidelman in November and charged him with having sexual contact with a child younger than 11. Police say the abuse occurred at his home. Scheidelman was also a former chairman of the county Republican Committee.
