NEW CITY – A 46-year-old Haverstraw man pled guilty in Rockland County Court to course of sexual conduct against a child as a felony.

The case against Sherman Brody was about to begin before Judge Kevin Russo.

From late 2017 to April 2021, Brody allegedly engaged in a course of sexual abuse against a young girl at various locations in Haverstraw. The child was about seven years old when the abuse began.

Brody is set to be sentenced in August to 14 years in state prison followed by 10 years of post-release supervision.

He will also have to register as a sex offender when he is released from custody.

The investigation was conducted by Town of Haverstraw Police with the assistance of the Rockland County Sheriff’s Office and the  Special Victims Unit of the District Attorney’s Office.

“Heinous crimes against children are some of the most egregious offenses in our society,” said Rockland District Attorney Thomas Walsh II. “The plea of guilty by the defendant today is a key step- as we hold him responsible for his actions. We can only hope the victim in this case can recover from these horrific crimes.”
