Response To This Report
Upon McFadden’s conviction on February 1st the news release issued by the D.A.’s Office included a quote from Sandra Doorley.
“Rapes are among the most horrific crimes that we prosecute, and any time that we’re able to remove a sexual predator like Ronell McFadden from the streets, it’s a victory for this community,” said Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley. “This conviction was a long time coming, and a tremendous amount of the credit goes to the District Attorney Investigators for bringing Ronell McFadden to justice. Without their tenacity, he may well have escaped paying for his crime.”
Upon receiving that release 13WHAM News inquired about the particulars of this case. After more than a month of seeking an explanation or comment D.A. Doorley’s spokesman confirmed an interview for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. At 9:30 a.m. the interview was cancelled stating that Ms. Doorley “is not comfortable commenting until after sentencing” Thursday.
A Rochester Police Spokesman deferred comment to the D.A.’s Office until after sentencing is complete.
A.D.A. Truelove was located outside the office Wednesday afternoon and her response is above.
McFadden's lawyer declined comment.
McFadden is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday afternoon and faces up to 50 years in prison.
