  • Staff Report 

Jeffrey Kuney was sentenced to 20 years in prison Wednesday in Ontario County Court for first- and third-degree rape. The sentencing followed his conviction for a 2021 assault against a woman in his Canandaigua home. During the proceedings, the victim described Kuney as a “predatory monster,” articulating the trauma he inflicted without remorse.


Assistant District Attorney Victoria Porter emphasized the community’s increased safety with Kuney’s incarceration, recognizing the gravity of his actions.

The case, which initially was part of a larger indictment involving multiple charges against Kuney, highlighted a pattern of abuse. As more victims came forward, the severity of his crimes became apparent. Kuney faces additional charges related to other alleged incidents, underscoring ongoing legal challenges. His attorney has not provided comments on the case.
