CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- A Cortlandt Manor man was sentenced to 25-years-to-life after pleading guilty to three counts of predatory sexual assault, according to a statement released by the Westchester County District Attorney's office.

Richard Dinizo, 55, pleaded guilty to tricking two 7-year-old girls and one 10-year-old girl into playing a tasting game that involved the girls performing acts of oral sex. 

Dinizo made the victims wear a mask and recorded the lewd sexual acts that took place between March 1, 2008 and July 31, 2010. 

According to police, Dinizo has been active as a volunteer coach for a private girls basketball team in the Westchester area dating to at least the mid-1990s.

The case was investigated by the New York State Police, the Westchester County District Attorney's Office and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Dinizo is also facing federal charges.

I am Concerned:

So glad he's going away for a good long sentence. What a Creep.

thebutlersellsit:

good, i give it 6 months before an inmate takes care of him. from what i heard you can do anything to get to prison thats accepted but dont harm a child... hopefully justice will be served when he gets to prison.... we need to protect kids from these monsters and enact the death penalty for pedifiles. as dennis miller says best way to track them is w head stones!!
