Defendant: Rivu Dey (DOB: 10/24/92)

Nov. 20, 2018 -- Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced Rivu Dey, formerly of White Plains, was sentenced to 10 years probation in Westchester County Court before Judge Susan Cacace for attempting to lure a child to engage in sexual activity. He must register as a sex offender. The Court approved his probation transfer to Erie County where he resides.

Dey, a chemical engineer, pleaded guilty Aug. 21, 2018, to one count of Attempted Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree, a class E felony. This charge specifically states the defendant attempted to engage in a sex act with “another person less than 15 years old.”

From Nov. 30, 2017, to Dec. 18, 2017, Dey communicated with an undercover criminal investigator of the District Attorney’s Office whom Dey believed was the stepfather of a child who was being made available for sexual activity. Dey arranged to meet the undercover officer and the child at an agreed-upon location. Based upon their online communications, Dey believed the child and the undercover officer would be waiting for him so he and the child could engage in sexual activity.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Michael Delohery of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Investigations Division.
