A local man pleaded guilty Friday to sexually abusing three children under the age of 11, according to Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler.

Anthony Martinez, 18, of Highland Falls, admitted that between Aug. 1 and Nov. 30, 2017, he rubbed himself against the buttocks of three young girls, the oldest who was 5.

Prosecutors are recommending a total sentence of 15 years in state prison when Martinez is sentenced on March 2, the DA's Office said.

“I thank the New York State Police for their investigation on this difficult case,” said Hoovler. “Children are the most vulnerable and innocent of victims. This disposition ensures that these children will be spared the ordeal of having to testify in open court. My office will continue to seek severe state prison sentences when children are victimized.”

He will remain in the Orange County Jail until his sentencing.
