A Flanders man who sexually abused two young girls was sentenced Friday to four years in prison, authorities said.

Albert Carini, 53, had pleaded guilty to felony second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child and a misdemeanor second-degree sexual abuse charge on April 5.

He was sentenced before Judge Barbara Kahn in Suffolk County criminal court Friday morning and will be supervised for 10 years after his prison sentence is complete, said Assistant District Attorney Dana Brown.

Orders of protections were also issued against Mr. Carini for the two victims, and a third order of protection is being sought in family court for a witness, Ms. Brown said.

The two abused children were sisters and were friends of Mr. Carini’s daughters, Ms. Brown said.

Mr. Carini was accused in a grand jury indictment “engaged in two or more acts of sexual conduct” between mid-2011 and the end of May 2012.

“This is their best friend’s father, this is why it was such a hard case,” Ms. Brown said. “They completely trusted him. He should be ashamed of his actions.”
