New York State Trooper Trevor Donah normally arrives at the Clinton County Courthouse in the front seat of a police cruiser, but Monday he was riding in the back of one, wearing handcuffs and prison stripes.

Donah was arrested last week at the end of his shift and charged with two counts of rape. Monday the Plattsburgh-based trooper and five year veteran of the force was back in court. He faces a new 13 count indictment that includes a third victim, and it paints a history of domestic violence against women.

The alleged abuse started back in September 2008 when Trooper Donah allegedly restrained, beat and tried to rape a woman identified in court papers as Jane Doe #3, in the City of Plattsburgh.

Later that year police said he held a woman identified as Jane Doe #1 against her will at a residence in Ellenburg.

Two years later, in June, police said Trooper Donah again attacked Jane Doe #1, this time at a home in Beekmantown. Police said this time he restrained her and raped her.

The following summer, another alleged violent attack -- this time at an apartment in Plattsburgh. The victim, Jane Doe #2, was allegedly beaten and choked.

A year later she fell victim to another alleged attack, where prosecutors said Donah restrained the woman and assaulted her.

A month later, prosecutors allege the trooper tried to strangle Jane Doe #2.  And than in September of 2012, Donah allegedly sexually abused and raped the woman.

Prosecutors said the attacks happened while Trooper Donah was off duty, and they said he knew all three women and had met them socially.

Donah pleaded not guilty to the new charges. Prosecutors said there could be more victims and the investigation has brought them to Vermont.
