Man who molested three North Tonawanda boys sentenced to 15 years

LOCKPORT - A truck driver from Ohio who traveled to North Tonawanda to sexually molest three boys was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison and 20 years of post-release supervision.

Bradley M. Heinichen, 29, of Mayfield, Ohio, victimized the children of friends between May 2014 and June of this year, prosecutors said.

"I just want to say sorry," Heinichen said.

"Sorry that you're going to prison for 15 years or sorry that you molested three children?" Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon shot back.

"Sorry that I did what I did," Heinichen replied. Two of the victims are now 12 years old and the other is 16.

Assistant Public Defender A. Joseph Catalano said that when he first met Heinichen, "He immediately said that he didn't want to go to trial. He thought he'd done enough damage."
