Yates County District Attorney Todd Casella said Robert Christensen Jr. pleaded guilty Tuesday in county court to first-degree criminal sexual act (class B felony) and first-degree sexual abuse (class D felony).

Christensen, 56, is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 26 by Judge Jason Cook to a prison sentence ranging from 10-12 years, followed by 20 years of parole. Christensen will have to register as a sex offender, and Cook signed an order of protection barring Christensen from having any contact with the victims.
