Niagara Falls man sentenced to 10 years for sex abuse of boy

Christopher P. Gordon of Niagara Falls was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison, to be followed by 20 years of post-release supervision, for sexually abusing an adolescent boy over a two-year period.

Gordon, 46, of 60th Street, already was a registered Level 1 sex offender because of a 1999 sodomy conviction.

He pleaded guilty on April 25 to a reduced charge of attempted first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, after a jury had been selected for his trial on charges of abusing the boy from July 2013 to July 2015, when the victim was 12 to 14 years old.

The plea deal was made after Assistant Public Defender Christopher A. Privateer learned from First Assistant District Attorney Holly E. Sloma that a second male accuser had come forward against Gordon.

State Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski imposed the sentence.
