ALBION MAN GETS PRISON IN CHILD SEX-ABUSE CASE

Lee Albertson, 33, of West Academy Street, pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree sexual abuse for having sexual contact with a young girl in May, and faces up to three years in prison.

Conviction on the charge carries a term of up to seven years behind bars, but in exchange for pleading guilty, and sparing two young girls the ordeal of testifying at a trial, District Attorney Joseph V. Cardone agreed to a three-year "cap."

Albertson was arrested in May for having sexual contact with two girls younger than 11. Sentencing is set for Jan. 31 before Orleans County Judge James P. Punch.
