Ballston Spa man sentenced for child molestation
BALLSTON SPA — A Ballston Spa man was sentenced today to 20 years in state prison on his previous guilty plea to child molestation and another charge.
Yvon J. Gregoire, 36, will also serve 14 years of post-release supervision and will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
He had pleaded guilty earlier to first-degree criminal sexual act, a class B felony, for an incident occurring in September 2008, and first-degree disseminating indecent material to a minor, which occurred in June 2013.
Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III said Gregoire had sexual contact with a girl when she was 11 and he was 31, and later sent explicit pictures of himself to another girl, who was then younger than 16 years old.
“This defendant is the textbook definition of a child predator who deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life,” Murphy said.
