A sicko father of four will serve 20 years to life in prison after pleading guilty today to preying on a pair of kids for years.
Registered nurse Michael Sabo sheepishly admitted that he took advantage of a boy, starting in 2001, when the child was five years old. He also admitted to repeatedly forcing a girl under the age of 13 to perform sex acts on him from 2006 to 2009.
"I had her perform oral sex on me," Sabo said, squirming and tugging at his collar as he whispered the guilty plea into a microphone. "It happened, yes, at lest four times."
Sabo pleaded guilty as jury selection was set to start in a criminal trial that could have put him behind bars for hundreds of years. Both of his young victims were set to testify against him.
The 38-year-old creep was busted in 2010 when authorities found hundreds of revolting kiddie porn images on his home computer.
Sabo's perversion became exposed when a rabbi tracked down the family of the boy, whose image had ended up on a vile Russian kiddie porn website.
The boy was tied up but clothed in the photo, which showed Sabo's hand and his home in the background. Authorities then found the filth on Sabo's computer, which included raunchy videos, images of naked children downloaded from the Internet and shots of the deviant dad in the nude.
Defense lawyer, Jeffrey Schwartz pleaded for mercy before Judge Vincent DelGiudice, saying, "One can argue that he is a victim," because of abuse Sabo may have suffered as a kid.
"There's a lot of sadness on both sides," Schwartz said.
Sabo initially faced other charges that were dismissed because the family of a third alleged victim did not want the child to testify against him.
