A Flanders man has been indicted by a grand jury on felony sexual abuse charges for allegedly abusing two children several times from mid-2011 through May 2012 and in 2009, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota’s office.

Albert Carini, 53, was arrested July 20 and was indicted on charges of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, both felonies, second-degree sexual abuse and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, all misdemeanors, said DA spokesman Robert Clifford.

Mr. Carini pleaded not guilty to the indictment on Aug. 3, according to online records, and is being held at Suffolk County jail on $500,000 bond or $150,000 cash bail.

According to the grand jury indictment, between mid-2011 and through May 2012, Mr. Carini “engaged in two or more acts of sexual conduct” with a child younger than 11 years old, including at least one act of sexual intercourse, oral sexual conduct, anal sexual conduct, or aggravated sexual contact.

The Flanders man is also accused of abusing a child less than 14 years old in November 2009, the indictment states.

His next appearance in court is on Aug. 23, according to court records.
