Cortland couple accused of sex crimes against child under 11

A couple from Cortland has been arrested on allegations that they sexually abused a girl younger than 11 over the course of the last year to year and a half.

Police say Christopher M. Perry, 35, and his girlfriend, Sarah R. Gates, 38, have “repeatedly engaged in felony sex crimes against a girl.”

Investigators say they found photographs and videos on Perry’s phone that implicates him and Gates.



Perry is facing a dozen charges including predatory sexual assault against a child, criminal sexual act, rape and use of a child in a sexual performance.

Gates has been charged with seven crimes including predatory sexual assault against a child, criminal sexual act, and promoting an obscene sexual performance by a chid.

Right now, police say there is no indication there are other victims.

Perry and Gates were taken to the Cortland County Jail where they are being held without bail.
