ALBION – A Kendall man, who is already serving a 4-year sentence for molesting girls, was given an additional 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison for having child pornography on his computer.

David Perry Sr., 68, of Norway Road was sentenced to 4 years in state prison on Dec. 13. He pleaded guilty previously to sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of five girls ranging in age from 13 to 15.

Perry, who is now an inmate at the Elmira Correctional Facility, pleaded guilty in Orleans County Court on April 24 to possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

Law enforcement had a search warrant for Perry’s house and computer and discovered approximately 15,000 images of suspected child pornography 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, police said.

In court on April 24, Perry admitted to having downloaded a video showing a prepubescent girl having sex with a man.

Today in court during sentencing Perry said he purchased a used computer and the child pornography was on the computer because of a previous owner.

“I bought a used computer,” Perry told Judge Sara Sheldon. “I didn’t know it was on there.”

“Do I believe you?” Sheldon told Perry. “No.”

She refused a request from Perry’s attorney, Nathan Pace, to have the latest sentence be served at the same time as the original 4-year sentence.

“Not in this court,” Sheldon told Perry. “This isn’t the first time you’ve done this. Your fascination with little girls predates this crime.”

Pace said Perry has “serious health considerations.” Sheldon said she wouldn’t give Perry a break on the sentence.

In addition to additional time in prison, Perry has to pay $1,000 for a supplemental sex offender victim fee, $325 for a court surcharge, $50 for the sex offender registry and $50 for a DNA fee.
