Ogdensburg man sentenced for second child sexual assault


CANTON— An Ogdensburg man who pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted rape in June was sentenced to four years in state prison Monday by St. Lawrence County Judge Jerome J. Richards.

Robert R. Conte, 34, of 101 Jersey Ave., pleaded guilty June 1 to having sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl on Sept. 23, 2010, on King Street in Ogdensburg.

In court, Conte admitted to being a second-time child sexual assault offender. He previously was convicted of third-degree rape in 2002, having pleaded guilty to having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl on Jan. 14, 2001, in Ogdensburg.

He was ordered to pay $1,425 in fees and $1,028.50 in restitution and also was sentenced to 15 years’ probation.
