A Cortland man was arrested last week following an investigation into allegations he sexually abused three children.
Appearing yesterday (December 4) in city court for these crimes was 25-year-old Jonathon Storm-Lee Berry, of Owego Street.
City Police say he was acquainted with the children prior to the incidents.
Their investigation determined he had sexual contact with a two-year old boy, a four-year old girl, and an eight-year old boy on several occasions this past year (2019), which happened separately but all at the same residence on Pendleton Street.
His brother, Lawrence, currently awaits a federal trial of his own for charges first filed in September 2018 related to the sexual abuse of a child under the age of five – which his wife, Brittany, has already pled guilty to. (more on that story here)
No more details are yet available on Jonathon’s case, but his charges include three counts of first-degree sex abuse and three counts of first-degree criminal sex act, accumulating to a total of six pending felonies.
