ALBION – Sentencing was moved back a day for a Kendall man who pled guilty to multiple charges of sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of five girls ranging in age from 13 to 15.

David P. Perry Sr., 67, of Norway Road asked Orleans County Court Judge James Punch to sentence him this afternoon.

But Perry’s assigned attorney, David Morabito, wasn’t in court.

Punch didn’t want to sentence Perry without the presence of an attorney.

“Your honor can I ask that you sentence me now,” Perry said to the judge.

“You can ask but I’m going to deny it,” Punch responded.

Rather than move the sentencing back two weeks when court was next scheduled to meet, Perry will be sentenced at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

“I don’t want these victims to have to wait two more weeks,” Punch said.

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.

He was charged with sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child because Perry would allegedly make five girls undress, then he would perform various criminal sexual acts and sexual abuse, according to the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office.

It is also alleged that Perry would force the victims to pose for pictures while undressed or partially dressed.

Perry also was arrested and charged with 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 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 when Perry was charged in May.
