ALBION – David Perry, the Kendall man sentenced to 4 years in state prison on Dec. 13 for molesting girls, was offered a plea deal on Monday in County Court where he could face an additional 4 years in state prison for child pornography.

Perry, 68, of Norway Road was called a “child molester” by County Court Judge James Punch during sentencing on Dec. 13.

Perry faced a 1 ½ to 4-year sentence in prison. The judge gave Perry the maximum, saying he is “a serious danger to society.” Perry had pled guilty previously to sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of five girls ranging in age from 13 to 15. (Perry is now an inmate at the Elmira Correctional Facility.)

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.

Perry appeared in court on Monday with his assigned counsel, Nathan Pace. District Attorney Joe Cardone presented Perry with a plea offer where he would face up to 4 years in state prison for possession of sexual performance by a child, a felony. Perry is facing 21 counts of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

If Perry accepts the plea deal, Judge Punch would determine the length of sentence and whether it would be served with the current prison sentence or separately. There is a chance the case could be turned over to the U.S. Attorney’s office and Perry could face federal charges.
