Foot fondler found guilty
Rochester, N.Y. - A Rochester man was found guilty Monday of sexually assaulting three children between January 23 and July 17 of 2012 in two local libraries.
Anthony Perri was found guilty of three counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree (class D Felony) and three counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child (class A Misdemeanor).
Perri approached his victims while they were reading books at libraries, removed their footwear, and inappropriately touched their feet.
Court paper show that, in one case, Perri allegedly took a 6-year-old girls shoe, fondled her feet and then pressed her foot against his face.
So much was made about the defendants bizarre behavior both before and after his arrest that many forget that this man victimized children, said William Gargan, Chief of the Monroe County District Attorneys Office Domestic Violence Bureau. Mr. Perris actions, while strange, were fundamentally predatory, and I believe strongly that the children of this community are safer following todays verdict.
Perri will remain in the Monroe County Jail before being sentenced on December 5. He faces up to 10 years in prison.
