Dundee man found guilty in sexual abuse trial

PENN YAN --Dale L. LaBell, 63, of Dundee was found guilty after trial of the class D violent felony, sexual abuse in the first degree, as well as the misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child. According to Yates County District Attorney Valerie Gardner, LaBell could face up to seven years in prison, plus a period of up to 10 years of post-release supervision when sentenced on a date yet to be scheduled by the Yates County Court. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
The indictment handed down by a Yates County Grand Jury in December of 2016, after presentation by District Attorney Gardner, charged LaBell with subjecting a nine-year-old female child to sexual contact at LaBell's Shannon Corners Road residence in August, 2016. LaBell, who has been in Yates County jail since his arraignment Dec. 16, 2016, subsequently waived his right to a jury trial. Opening statements and testimony began Tuesday, June 20, 2017 and continued through final arguments Friday, June 23. Gardner prosecuted the case on behalf of the People of the State of New York and the defendant was represented by Yates County Conflict Defender, Tiffany Sorgen. Yates County Court Judge Jason Cook handed down the guilty verdict on all counts in open court Wednesday, June 28.
Gardner stated, "I am pleased that justice for this young girl and her family has been served. These cases can be very difficult and traumatic for young victims. The support provided by NY State Police Investigator Diane Trickey, the DA's Office Victim Advocate Caitlyn Metz of Safe Harbors, and the victim's family was ever present, as was the courage of a very brave little girl."
