Buffalo man convicted of raping minor sentenced to 35 years

A Buffalo man convicted of having sex with a minor was sentenced Thursday to a maximum 35 years in prison, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

In May, a jury found Robert Healy, 37, guilty of three counts of second-degree rape, two counts of second-degree criminal sexual act and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, the District Attorney's Office said.

Healy was convicted of engaging in sexual intercourse with a minor child under the age of 15 from June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, the District Attorney's Office said.

State Supreme Court Justice Deborah Haendiges issued an order of protection preventing Healy from having contact with the victim until 2065, officials said.

Healy also was sentenced to an additional 2 to 4 years in prison that will be served consecutively, on a conviction of felony aggravated family offense for sending letters from jail to the mother of the victim, in violation of an order of protection, the District Attorney's Office said.
