Erie Man Sentenced to 12-24 years in Child Rape Case

In November 2022, a jury found Terry Deberry (36) guilty of all charges, including rape of a child and corruption of minors for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl during the spring and summer of 2021. Today, the Honorable Judge Daniel J. Brabender Jr. sentenced Deberry to 12-24 years of incarceration for those crimes. The convictions also require Deberry to register pursuant to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) for the rest of his life. 

District Attorney Beth Hirz and ADA Brittany Felder prosecuted the case on behalf of the Commonwealth.
