Convicted sex offender and repeat drunk driver sentenced

NORWICH— A convicted sex offender was re-sentenced, and repeat drunk driver pleaded guilty and was sentenced on Nov. 21 in Chenango County Court.

• Richard D. Downey, 77, Oxford, was convicted of two sex offender charges, one in 2006 and another in 2008. He was sentenced to 10 years of probation.

Downey violated his probation this year and was remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility without bail by Judge Frank B. Revoir, Jr. on Oct. 27.

Downey was not to own, use or possess sexually stimulating materials as part of the terms of his probation. Sexually stimulating materials were found on his cell phone.

“Judge, he wasn't to possess pornography or child pornography. He was hiding his cell phone from his probation officer,” said First Assistant District Attorney Michael D. Ferrarese. “His probation officer found pornographic images of people under the age of 18 on his phone.”
