Press Release 6/18/13
On June 6th, 2013, a 26 year old Green River man was sentenced out of Sweetwater County Court to a term at the Wyoming State Penitentiary for two counts of 2nd Degree Sexual Abuse of a Minor, and one count of Burglary. In October of 2012, Charles Anthony Berry was arrested in Indiana and extradited to Sweetwater County to face the charges. Berry has been incarcerated at the Sweetwater County Detention Center since his extradition.
Berry’s burglary charges stem from an incident that occurred in Green River, in August of 2012, where Berry entered a resident’s garage and stole several items. The 2nd degree Sexual Abuse of a Minor charges stem from incidents that occurred during the summer months of 2012, where Berry enticed two victims, both between the ages of 13 and 15 years old, into sexual acts. Berry was sentenced 3-7 years for the burglary, and 8-15 years for each count of Sexual Abuse of a Minor.
