ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Spencerport man was sentenced in court on Monday for attempting to have sex with a minor.

47-year-old dale Trimmer was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Trimmer admitted to using a chat app to speak with who he thought was a 13-year-old girl, engaging in explicit conversations and attempting to solicit explicit photos, as well as sending explicit videos of himself.

Trimmer discussed meeting up with the girl, who was really an undercover officer.

Instead, he was arrested on Feb. 17, 2021.

Trimmer was convicted on charges of disseminating indecent material to minors back in 2006 and was sentenced to serve six months in the Monroe County Jail followed by five years’ probation.

Prosecutors say, in that case, Trimmer also used a chat app and attempted to meet up with an undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old girl, and that in those chats, he told the undercover officer he had abused at least two minors in the past.
