  • On one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, an A misdemeanor –  I year merged with the other sentences.

Brody was arrested by New York State Police April 22, 2017, after the victim reported to police years of abuse by Brody in the town of Cortlandt.

The investigation revealed Brody subjected the child victim to multiple acts of sexual conduct over the course of years, starting when the child was seven years old and continuing until the child was 13. At the time Brody committed these crimes, he was a registered Level 2 Sex Offender, having been convicted previously in 1992 of Sex Abuse in the First Degree against another child who was eight years old at the time. He completed his sentence on the first assault in 1998 some years before meeting the most recent victim.

Assistant District Attorneys Paul Stein, Chief of the Child Abuse/Elder Abuse Bureau, and Amit Parab of the Special Prosecutions Division prosecuted the case.
