Brothers suspected of having multiple sexual abuse victims over three-decade period

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime.

The brother of a former Batavia resident already under a grand jury indictment for allegedly abusing children has been taken into custody by the FBI and accused of transporting children across state lines for sexual purposes.

David Allen Vickers, 49, of Stanley, is accused of taking a child on his commercial truck driving trips to New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Canada and engaging in sexual activity with the child.

The investigation into Vickers began after the recent arrest of Sean M. Vickers, 44, of 117 Andes St., Geneva, for allegedly sexually abusing children in Batavia more than a decade ago.

Media coverage of Sean's arrest prompted other alleged victims to come forward and led to the investigation of David.

The two bothers are suspected of being involved in sexual abuse going back as long as 30 years ago and which has continued until as recently as two months ago.

Authorities encourage any parent of a child that came into contact with either of the brothers, or any adults whose children came into contact with either of the brothers to get in touch with local law enforcement.

Numerous alleged victims have already come forward, according to police.

Sean Vickers is also a suspect in sexual abuse cases in Niagara County.

A trial will determine innocence or guilt.

Regardless, there are two sure cures for pedophiles; life in prison with no chance of parole or a dirt blanket.

Nope. That was a different guy Gary. John Eastridge. Vickers is still awaiting trial.
