Man Accused Of Pricking Underage Girls’ Buttocks

‘A man is accused of paying underage girls to let him jab their buttocks, and he now faces charges under a new law that specifically addresses crimes committed for sexual gratification, prosecutors said.

Frank Ranieri, 25, of Staten Island, paid at least five girls — all between the ages of 15 and 17 — thousands of dollars since 2003 to engage in “piquerism,” a sexual fixation on penetrating the body with sharp objects, such as pins, nails and stilettos, the Staten Island district attorney’s office said.

The Daily News, citing unidentified sources, reported that Ranieri was a member of the Police Academy’s July 2004 class, but that he left after two months. It was not clear why.’
