NORWICH – Chenango County Court convened Wednesday Jan. 14, 2016 to once again see an individual convicted of sexual crimes against a child for again violating his terms set forth by the court.
Devon L. Ireland, 20, of Norwich has now previously appeared in court several times for repeated violations. Ireland was again accompanied by his attorney, Public Defender John Cameron.
Chenango County Court Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr. presided over the case once again.
District Attorney Joseph A. McBride was present on behalf of the people.
Previously it was alleged that on Dec. 3, 2011, and November of 2011, in the towns of Guilford and Bainbridge, that Ireland unlawfully engaged in sexual conduct with individuals under the age of 11.
Ireland was originally indicted by a grand jury in March of 2012, at the time Ireland was 16 years of age and indicted on the crimes of criminal sexual act in the first degree, a class B felony; three counts of first degree sexual abuse, a class D felony; and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Ireland later pleaded guilty to three counts of first degree sexual abuse, a class D felony, and was sentenced to ten years probation.
Ireland was to spend the first six months of that sentence, with time served, in the Chenango County Correctional Facility and was made to register as a sex offender.
