KENDALL – Orleans County Court Judge James Punch today set bail at $500,000 for David P. Perry Sr., a Kendall resident who faces 32 counts of charges related to sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of five girls ranging in age from 13 to 15.

Perry first appeared before Punch in court on Monday. The arraignment was completed today when the judge set bail and Perry appeared with assigned counsel, David Morabito of East Rochester.

Morabito entered a not guilty plea on behalf of Perry.

The judge assigned counsel after determining that Perry, who is on Social Security, had an income that qualified for an assigned attorney.

Perry, a resident of Norway Road, was arrested on March 9. He allegedly forced juvenile victims to smoke marijuana and drink alcoholic wine and vodka over several months in 2015. At times, the victims would reportedly consume these substances to the point of becoming impaired and intoxicated, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office reported when he was arrested.

Perry would allegedly make them undress, then he would perform various criminal sexual acts and sexual abuse. It is also alleged that Perry would force the victims to pose for pictures while undressed or partially dressed.

Judge Punch issued orders of protection for the five alleged victims in case. He told Perry that also means he can not have any communication through social media with the girls.

On Monday, he appeared in Orleans County Court in front of Judge James Punch. Perry was arraigned on three counts of third-degree criminal sexual act, 14 counts of first-degree unlawful dealing with a child, 10 counts of sexual abuse in the third degree, and five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

He also  was arrested on May 12 on child pornography charges, including 15 counts of possession of an obscene sexual performance by a child less than 16 years old.

Approximately 15,000 images of suspected child pornography were found on Perry’s devices, District Attorney Joe Cardone said today in court.

Cardone said the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo may pursue federal prosecution as well for child pornography crimes.
