Man charged with rape of child after internet correspondence

Posted:

GREENWICH, N.Y. – A White Plains man was arrested on Friday by State Police, charged with rape, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawfully dealing with a child.

Matthew Berry, 33, of 27 Barker Ave in White Plains, is accused of beginning a correspondence with a child younger than 17-years-old over the internet, then making arrangements to meet that child near the child's home in Washington County.

Police say Berry drove the child to a hotel in Lake George where he provided alcohol and then engaged in sexual intercourse with the child.

Berry then drove the child back to Washington County, withdrew cash from an ATM, paid the child and drove the child back home, according to police.

Berry was arraigned before Lake George Town Justice Stafford and has been remanded to the Warren County Jail.

Additional charges against Berry are pending.
