  • Staff Report 

Paul Goodrell, a 55-year-old man from Canandaigua is set to be sentenced Wednesday afternoon after pleading guilty to multiple charges of public lewdness and other offenses. Goodrell, who admitted to exposing himself in various public settings including local stores, faces up to seven years in prison followed by fifteen years of post-release supervision. His sentencing was originally scheduled for April 10 but was postponed.


The charges against Goodrell include endangering the welfare of children and a burglary committed as a sexually motivated felony. He confessed to exposing himself to young children in a Wegmans and other locations, with his criminal activities dating back to at least 1989. Goodrell has been a registered sex offender since 2010 following an incident in a girls’ locker room.

Ontario County Assistant District Attorney Anthony Dimartino emphasized the importance of the sentencing, noting that removing Goodrell from the community would prevent further harm to children. The district attorney’s office has been actively supporting the affected families throughout the legal process. Goodrell is expected to appear before the judge at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
