A Hudson Valley man is accused of having abusive sexual conduct with two children, supplying them with drugs and forcing them to have sex with other men.

On Thursday in Southern District of New York Court, 52-year-old Mark Castagnetta of New Paltz was sentenced to over 18 years in prison and a lifetime term of supervised release for pleading guilty to one count of sex trafficking.

From 2014 through July 2016, Castagnetta contacted two children through an adult fetish website and enticed them to travel to his home to engage in a sexual relationship in which he played the role of “slave master” and the victim played the role of “slave,” police say.

Once the children arrived in the home, Castagnetta had abusive sexual conduct with the victims, supplied the victims with illegal drugs and induced them to engage in sexual conduct with other individuals in exchange for drugs and money.

“This defendant callously robbed two children of their innocence, inducing them to travel to his home in New Paltz, New York, where he not only sexually abused them, but forced them to have sex with other men in exchange for drugs and money,” Acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said in a press release.

Castagnetta also owned an image containing child pornography of one of the victims, officials say.
