FALLS MAN CONVICTED OF SODOMY, SEXUAL ABUSE

A County Court jury Wednesday convicted Kenneth E. Ellison, 37, of Niagara Falls, of two counts of third-degree sodomy and one third-degree sexual-abuse charge after deliberating about 90 minutes.

However, they cleared Ellison, of 48B Southgate, of the more serious charges of first-degree sodomy and sexual abuse and second-degree menacing.

His trial, which stemmed from May 10, 1996, incidents involving a 14-year-old girl in Niagara Falls, opened with jury selection Monday with Judge Charles J. Hannigan presiding.

The sentencing date will be scheduled later.
