WHITE PLAINS, NY – On Tuesday, Westchester County Judge Susan Cacace sentenced Pablo Dure, 46, to 17 years in prison, after he pleaded guilty in April to first-degree sexual conduct against a child.
Dure was arrested in April 2020, three months after the girl’s mother discovered that she was pregnant.
In August 2020, the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office issued the following statement:
The case alleges that on or about and in between Dec. 1, 2017, and Nov. 1, 2019, Pablo Dure, a man in his early 40s, engaged in sexual intercourse on a regular basis with a female child victim when she was between the ages of 10 and 12. The allegations came to light in January 2020 when the victim’s mother discovered her 12-year-old child was approximately 33 weeks pregnant. The victim gave birth to a baby and through DNA analysis, the defendant’s paternity of the baby was established.
At his sentencing, through a Spanish language interpreter, Dure apologized to his victim, now 13-years-old.
Judge Cacace also ruled that Dure can have no contact with his child until 2046.
*Apparently, New York law takes parental rights into account, even when that child is the result of child rape. As New York is a ‘sanctuary state,’ Dure is in no danger of being deported when he is released from prison.
