FONDA - A Fort Plain businessman was indicted last week on multiple charges of sexual acts involving a minor, assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.
Dennis Todd, 62, of 24 Willet St., was indicted Thursday on one count of first-degree criminal sexual act with a minor, 10 counts of second-degree criminal sexual act with a minor, one count of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of second-degree assault, according to the office of District Attorney James "Jed" Conboy.
Todd is accused of having repeated sexual contact with a minor, occurring in January 2007, December 2010 and the summer of 2011. The assault charge comes from Aug. 16, when he struck a man in the head with a baseball bat, the district attorney's office said. The first-degree criminal sexual act occurred in the town of Canajoharie, the district attorney's office said, while the rest occurred in Fort Plain.
A trial date has not been established.
Todd also was charged by Fort Plain police Dec. 10 with driving while ability impaired by drugs, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to keep right.
Police said Todd was charged after officers responded to the scene of a hit-and-run accident on Railroad Street. Within minutes, police said, the vehicle and driver, Todd, were located. A field sobriety test was administered, police said.
Todd previously was charged Aug. 18 with first-degree criminal sexual act based on allegations he had sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy.
On Aug. 31, WNYT aired video footage allegedly showing Todd yelling at and chasing a cameraman, eventually throwing a brick at him.
Todd is the chief executive officer of Old Fort Plaza and owner of Dennis' Daylight Donuts, according to state Department of State records.
