Lily Dale Man Sentenced For Sexual Conduct Against A Child

Chautauqua County District Attorney David W. Foley has announced that David Goodworth, 54, of 7 South St., Lily Dale, was sentenced today to a determinate sentence of 20 years in state prison plus 10 years post-release supervision for first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, a class B felony.

Foley said he was pleased with the outcome saying that not only does this punish Goodworth for these heinous acts but sends a message to sex offenders that they can expect to receive significant time for similar crimes.

“I am glad to see that the new sentencing guidelines for sex offenders which was passed in 2007 is finally taking effect and we’re seeing an increase in the length of prison terms,” he added.

The district attorney expressed his appreciation to Investigator Ed Kalfas of the New York State Police, the Child Advocacy Program, Assistant District Attorney Laurie Beckerink, the victims and victims’ family for their support and strength.
