MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County District Attorney Jason Schmidt unsealed a 24-count indictment against Dustin Post who is accused of 11 separate crimes of predatory first-degree sexual assault against a child, nine separate crimes of first-degree criminal sexual act and first-degree rape, all felonies.

“The crimes described in this indictment are alleged to have been committed against seven different children here in Chautauqua County, the oldest being 12 years old and the youngest being one,” Schmidt said. “They span the period between in and or around September 2015 through August 2019.”

“I want to applaud the bravery of child victims and their families who come forward to tell their stories,” Schmidt added “No one wants to relive traumatic events. They do so in order that others do not experience what they have.”
