A Jamaica man is facing 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing two 7-year-old girls in South Ozone Park last May.
Lee Samuel, 26, of 174th Street, pleaded guilty on Monday to first-degree criminal sexual act and first-degree sexual abuse. He is scheduled to be sentenced by Acting Queens Supreme Court Justice Elisa Koenderman on May 5. He had been held without bail since his arrest last May.
A statement issued by the office of Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Samuel also will face 20 years of post-release supervision upon leaving prison.
“The defendant has admitted to being a sexual predator and, as such, he has proven himself to be a threat to children and a clear and present danger to society in general,” Brown said.
“Today’s plea ensures that he will be punished for his crimes and spares his young victims of having to relive their nightmarish experience at trial,” the District Attorney added.
Brown’s office said Samuel approached the two children on the same day, several hours apart.
