HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — An Enfield man has pleaded guilty to sexually molesting two young girls over an eight-year period starting when they were 2 and 4 years old.

The Courant reports that 45-year-old James Phillip Menard, whose trial was scheduled to start soon, reached a deal with prosecutors Wednesday under which he pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child.

He was originally charged with 17 counts of first-degree sexual assault and other charges.

Under terms of the deal, he will be sentenced to 12 years in prison, 10 years of special parole and must register as a sex offender. Sentencing is scheduled for July 14.

Prosecutors say the abuse took place from 2005 until 2013 and didn’t end until the victims were 11 and 12.
