Lockport man arrested for alleged sexual contact with a child under 11

LOCKPORT – The arrest of a 39-year-old man for an alleged sexual incident with a child some months ago was announced Monday by the State Police.

Brian C. Dever was charged Friday by investigators with the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation with first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child in connection with a complaint lodged last November about him allegedly subjecting an unidentified child under age 11 to sexual contact.

State Police said before Dever was formally charged he agreed while being interviewed about the alleged incident to take part in a sex offender risk assessment. State Police officials declined further comment on that issue. Dever has been released without bail and faces further proceedings Thursday in Lockport Town Court.
