Berry pleads guilty to molestation

March 12, 2007

Albany --   An Albany man is sentenced to 25 years in prison, after he pleads guilty to molesting two children.  

Calvin Berry was given a life sentence for aggravated child molestation and sexual battery, with 25 to be served in prison and then placed on probation for life as a sex offender.

Prosecutors say Berry molested two girls, ages 9 and 12, in September 2006.  "We treat all of these cases the same, very aggressively when needed. Anyone who commits offenses like Mr. Berry deserves to be exactly where he is and that's in prison," said Asst. District Attorney Christopher Cohilas.  

The minimum prosecutors could seek on aggravated child molestation is 25 years in prison without the poss of parole. Before the sex offender legislation was passed in 2006 the minimum was 10 years in prison.
