ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced today that Todd Glenn Dean, 51, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of enticing a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity, was sentenced to 18 years in prison by U.S. District Judge David G. Larimer.
Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who handled the case, stated that in September 2014, a minor male was approached by the defendant. Dean handed the minor a piece of paper with his telephone number on it. The minor then reported the incident to his mother who exchanged text messages with the defendant. Based on the exchanges, the mother notified law enforcement.
In October 2014, a law enforcement officer, posing as a 15 year old male, exchanged texts with Dean. The two arranged to meet in Genesee Valley Park for the purpose of having sex. The defendant was arrested when he arrived at the park.
The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Child Exploitation Task Force which includes the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the Rochester Police Department, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations.
