Kendall man accused of sex crimes against children arraigned on 32 counts
KENDALL – A Kendall man was arraigned in Orleans County Court on Monday on 32 counts of charges related to sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of five girls ranging in age from 13 to 15.
David P. Perry Sr., 67, of Norway Road was arrested on March 9. Perry 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.
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.
Perry is due back in Orleans County Court today at 11:30 a.m. for a full arraignment with a lawyer. Judge Punch is determining if Perry, who is on Social Security, is eligible for the public defender. Perry needed to fill out a financial form.
The judge also declined to set bail on Monday, but will during today’s court appearance. Perry is being held without bail until the judge sets the amount.
Perry was arraigned on May 12 by Murray Town Justice Ted Spada, who set bail at $250,000. Perry was arraigned 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.
The initial allegations resulted in a search warrant that was executed in January 2016. A computer and portable hard drive were submitted to the Western New York Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory in Buffalo for analysis.
Approximately 15,000 images of suspected child pornography were found on Perry’s devices that were submitted for analysis. Many of the images found were children between the ages of 2 and 9 years of age, Undersheriff Chris Bourke said last month.
In addition to the charges in Orleans County, Bourke said that Sheriff’s investigators and the Orleans County District Attorney’s office will be working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Buffalo for possible federal prosecution as well.
