Pendleton child molester sentenced to 15 years in prison

Christopher M. Wright, the Pendleton child molester whose 2016 flight from police led to a lockdown at Starpoint Central School, will serve 15 years in prison for sexual abuse of two boys and a girl, ages 12 to 14.

"You left a toll of human wreckage that's going to reverberate for decades," Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III told Wright Thursday.

"I scarred them for life. I'm so ashamed," sobbed Wright, 45, of Oakwood Drive, who admitted to three felonies for crimes committed in 2016.

A victim's mother called Wright "a monster," while defense attorney Herbert L. Greenman said he had a plea deal worked out in the original case until Wright confessed that he also had two other victims.

"It's a horror show for all concerned," Greenman said.
