Rape charges lead to prison sentence for Canandaigua resident

A Canandaigua man charged late last year with rape after having sex with a pair of high school freshmen was sentenced in Ontario County Court on Wednesday to serve two years in prison followed by 10 years of post-release supervision.

The sentence was handed down to Robert Ryan III, 22, who, as part of a plea deal with the county District Attorney’s Office, pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree rape, a class E felony, for having sex with the two 15-year-old girls.

As part of the plea bargain, Ryan admitted to the sexual contact with the teens, to whom he gave alcohol during the course of the criminal acts. Ryan also gave cocaine to one of the youths.
