A Lockport man pleaded not guilty Thursday to a batch of child sexual abuse charges dating to 2010, but he also received a plea offer in the case.
David A. Huntington, 79, of Prospect Street, was ordered back to Niagara County Court Sept. 11 to tell Judge Sara Sheldon whether he will plead guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of second-degree criminal sexual act. Those charges total a maximum of 21 years in prison, although attorneys in the case huddled with Sheldon for half an hour to discuss possible sentences.
Assistant District Attorney Cheryl L. Grundy said the alleged victim was 7 years old in 2010.
Huntington is free on $25,000 bail.
