Lopus Sentencing Scheduled for May

The man who traveled from Chautauqua County to Warren County trying to lure young girls into having sex with him will be sentenced in federal court on May 13.

42-year-old David Lopus of Ashville, New York, pleaded guilty to federal charges of sexual exploitation of children for traveling across state lines four times to try to have sex with the young girls. On one occasion he tried to lure an 11-year-old girl into a portable toilet near the Sugar Grove Elementary School playground.

Although the law provides for a total sentence of 90 years in prison, as part of the plea agreement, Lopus will spend only 21 years in prison, and then will be on parole for the rest of his life.
