Local Man Admits Child Sex Crime

By: Jeffrey Morse

NORWICH - After given what a prosecutor called an “opportunity” implicit in a 10 -year plea bargain for heinous local sex crimes, a middle-aged man was scolded for not offering any signs of remorse.

Gary L. Cleveland, 50, pleaded guilty to attempted criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the second degree for incidents in fall of 2005 during which he sexually imposed himself on young girls. He received a 10-year determinate sentence for the first count and 2-and-a-half to 7 years in state prison for the second count. The two sentences will run concurrent to one another, and Cleveland will be a registered sex offender when he is released.
