Crown Point man sentenced to state prison for sex crimes

CROWN POINT A repeat sex offender is headed to state prison after sentencing in Essex County Court Aug. 23.

Anthony A. Denno, 40, of Stony Lonesome Road, Crown Point received two consecutive terms of one and one-third to four years in state prison when he was sentenced by County Judge Richard Meyer.

Denno was convicted of two counts of felony third-degree criminal sexual act for having sex with male juveniles under age 17. The crimes occurred at his residence.

Because the sentences are consecutive, Denno will have to serve at least two and two-thirds years and as long as eight years. He is also subject to the states Civil Confinement Law before release.

He was assessed $1,370 in fines and fees and must submit a DNA sample for the state database. He must also reimburse the County Probation Department $800 and register as a sex offender upon his release.

The Essex County District Attorney's Office said Denno committed the crimes in June 2006 and was arrested by state police.
