A 42-year-old Hagerstown man who admitted in February that he had sex with two of his daughters was sentenced recently to 40 years in prison.
"No one knows better than I how tragically your children have been affected by this," said Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell at the February hearing.
The incidents came to light in August when the man's youngest son revealed he'd been sexually abused, beginning when he was 5 or 6.
A follow-up investigation led to charges the man also raped one of his daughters and molested another.
In exchange for the pleas, charges of parental child abuse, third- and fourth-degree sex offenses, second-degree assault of both daughters, and attempted second-degree rape were dropped.
