A 63-year-old Stony Plain man was sentenced to two years in prison Friday for molesting two seven-year-old girls including his niece and her friend.

The man, who can’t be named because of a court-ordered publication ban, pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual interference in Red Deer provincial court.

The offences occurred between May 2006 and Jan. 3, 2008 in Edson, Warburg and Innisfail.

The man, who has a lengthy record of sexual assaults, had been taking counselling but stopped because it was too expensive.

Oxford said the man lacks remorse and should be sentenced to 15 to 18 months in prison followed by at least 18 months of probation.

Defence lawyer Patty MacNaughton said her client is remorseful.

“He has lost the trust of his family.”

The man was ordered to surrender DNA for a national database and will be listed on a sex offender registry for 10 years.

Also, for 10 years after his release he must not go to a school, playground, swimming pool where children under 14 are found.

He also can’t work where there are children and can’t have a computer that allows any sort of contact with children.

He will also serve a two-year probation after his release.
