Sentencing hearing set for ex-commissioner
A sentencing hearing has been set next week for a former Columbia County commissioner and Harlem mayor convicted last month of molesting his adopted daughter.
Scott Dean, 42, was found guilty Dec. 16 on two counts of child molestation. His sentencing hearing is set for Jan. 27, according to a listing on Superior Court Judge James G. Blanchard’s calendar.
Dean faces five to 20 years for each count, Assistant District Attorney Parks White said.
