Ray Dennis Sentenced

Monday, January 22, 2018

Tompkins County District Attorney Matthew Van Houten announced that Ray J. Dennis, 49, was sentenced on January 16th, 2018, to a term of 10 years in state prison followed by 15 years of post-release supervision, for the attempted rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Acting County Court Judge Scott A. Miller found Dennis guilty of Attempted Rape in the First Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child on November 15, 2017, after a two-day non-jury trial.  Assistant District Attorney Kristen Grabowski prosecuted the case.  Attorney Thomas H. Kheel represented the defendant.

“I want to commend Kristen Grabowski for her excellent work in securing a conviction in this case.  This sentence provides a significant level of closure and justice for the victim and her family.”

The case was investigated by the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office.
