Pendleton man faces more sexual abuse charges of young girls

Christopher M. Wright, who is awaiting sentencing for molesting a 13-year-old Williamsville girl and who was arrested last week on charges of sexually assaulting another girl, now faces charges in connection with a third victim.

Wright, 45, of Oakwood Drive, Pendleton, was charged Wednesday with six more counts — two felonies and four misdemeanors — in connection with a third victim, who also was allegedly molested in 2016. Both of the new allegations occurred during 2016, said Capt. Bruce Elliott of the Niagara County Sheriff's Office. The crimes against the Williamsville girl stretched from May to October 2016.

County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III on Tuesday jailed Wright without bail to await sentencing Nov. 14 in the Williamsville girl's case. He faces a maximum of four years in prison.
