MAHOPAC, N.Y. - A Mahopac man has been sentenced to 18 years in state prison for twice raping a 12- year-old child.

Khori Salmon was sentenced on Aug. 17 by Judge James Rooney to a total of 18 years in state prison, 20 years post-release supervision, and registration as a sex offender.

Salmon was convicted last March of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, and two counts of first-degree rape.

Investigators said Salmon’s sexual conduct against his victim started when he lived in the Bronx and his victim, who also resided in the Bronx, was 9 years old. Salmon moved to Mahopac in 2017 and continued his abuse, which included raping the then 12-year-old victim twice in January 2018.

District Attorney Robert Tendy thanked the New York City Police Department, and the Bronx District Attorney’s Office for their assistance during the joint investigation. Tendy also thanked the Carmel Police Department, whose detectives investigated and arrested Salmon on the charges, specifically Det. Frank Chibbaro, Det. Michael Sheil, and Det. Sgt. Michael Nagle.

 “This conviction was the product of fantastic collaboration between numerous law enforcement agencies and my office,” Tendy said.

The case was prosecuted by assistant district attorneys Melissa Lynch and Nicholas LaStella.
