Pendleton sex offender arrested again, charged with crimes against different girl

Christopher M. Wright, the Pendleton man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 13-year-old Williamsville girl last year, was arrested Friday and charged with 10 counts of sex crimes against another girl.

Niagara County prosecutor Holly E. Sloma said Monday that the new charges stem from alleged offenses that predate the 2016 crimes.

In May, County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III placed Wright on interim probation, pending a final sentencing scheduled for Nov. 15.

Capt. Bruce Elliott of the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Bureau confirmed Wright was charged Friday with seven counts of second-degree sexual abuse, two counts of second-degree criminal sexual act and one count of first-degree sexual abuse, all of which occurred in 2016.

Pendleton Town Justice Kevin D. Mack jailed Wright on the new charges, setting bail at $200,000.
