A Hudson Valley teen admitted he sexually abused three children.

On Tuesday in Orange County Court, 19-year-old Anthony Martinez of Highland Falls was sentenced to 15-years in prison following his guilty plea to three counts of sexual abuse.

Martinez previously admitted he sexually touched three different children, all under the age of 11. Martinez was 18 when he sexually abused the children.

“The sexual abuse of children cannot be tolerated,” Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler said. "My staff is dedicated to bringing sexual abusers to justice. The disposition of this defendant’s case will remove him from society for about a decade and a half, so that he will not be able to abuse other children for that significant period.”
