Seven-year prison term for child sex abuser

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - FRONT PAGE - Free­man staff

KINGSTON >> A Kingston man was sentenced Wed­nes­day to seven years in state prison for sex­u­ally abus­ing a child in a Mid­town church, ac­cord­ing to the Ul­ster County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice.

Julio Tur­cios-Carias, 53, of 97 Downs St., was sentenced by Ul­ster County Judge Don­ald A. Wil­liams for sex­ual abuse as a vi­o­lent felony, the pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice said.

Dis­trict At­tor­ney Hol­ley Carn­right said the abuse oc­curred at the Igle­sia De Dios at 562 Broad­way in Kingston while Tur­cios-Carias was alone with a child un­der the age of 11. The na­ture and date of the abuse were not spec­i­fied.

Carn­right, in a pre­pared state­ment, said it was “ap­palling that this man would choose a lo­ca­tion that others hold sa­cred to gain ac­cess to an in­no­cent child.”

In ad­di­tion to the prison sen­tence, Tur­cios-Carias will be un­der 10 years of post-re­lease su­per­vi­sion and will have to regis­ter as a sex of­fender for a min­i­mum of 20 years. Wil­liams also is­sued an or­der of pro­tec­tion for the vic­tim that will re­main in ef­fect un­til Nov. 2, 2041.

Tur­cios-Carias is a Hon­duran cit­i­zen who has lived in the United States for about 15 years and could face col­lat­eral con­se­quences by fed­eral im­mi­gra­tion au­thor­i­ties, Carn­right said.

It was not im­medi- ately clear Wed­nes­day whether Tur­cios-Carias was con­victed at a trial or pleaded guilty.
