Huntington Station Father Gets 18 Years for Sexually Abusing Daughter

A Huntington Station father was sentenced Wednesday to 18 years in prison for sexually abusing his daughter, which was caught on video, Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney said.

The man, 42, was  sentenced on charges of:

 One count of Course of Sexual Conduct Against a Child in the First Degree, a Class B violent felony;
 Three counts of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree, Class D violent felonies;
 One count of Incest in the Second Degree, a Class D felony;
 One count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, a Class A misdemeanor; and
 One count of Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree, a Class B misdemeanor.

His name was withheld to avoid identifying his daughter.

“No child should ever be subjected to the horrors of sexual abuse, let alone by a family member,” said District Attorney Tierney. “This defendant violated his role as a father in the most despicable way. I hope this sentence provides the victim with closure and peace after what she endured for so long.”

According to court documents and the defendant’s admissions during his guilty plea allocution, the defendant began sexually abusing his daughter for three years, beginning in September 2018, when she was 11 years old, until August 2022.

In the summer of 2022, the victim’s mother began to suspect his behavior toward their daughter and left her cell phone recording in the bedroom while she went to the
kitchen to cook.

When the victim’s mother later viewed the video recording, she saw him sexually abusing their daughter. The victim’s mother immediately confronted the defendant and reported the abuse to the Suffolk County Police Department, who arrested the defendant that day.

On Dec. 20, the defendant pleaded guilty before County Court Judge,
Karen M. Wilutis.

He also will face 18 years of post-release supervision. He will be required to register as a sex offender.
