A Jamaica man was sentenced to 14 years in prison on Tuesday for having sexual contact with two 7-year-old girls in May 2013.

Lee Samuel, 26, formerly of 174th Street, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree criminal sexual act and first-degree sexual abuse. He had been held without bail since his arrest last year.

“The defendant has admitted to being a sexual predator and, as such, has proven himself to be a danger to children and a clear and present danger to society in general,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement released by his office on Tuesday.

Samuel admitted that he approached the first girl and touched her as she was tying her shoe on a sidewalk.

He approached the second victim several hours later about two miles from the first incident.

He exposed himself to the child and grabbed her during the attack.

Acting Queens Supreme Court Justice Elisa Koenderman also sentenced Samuel to an additional 20 years of post-release supervision.
