A South Ozone Park man will serve two years in prison for sexually abusing two young girls at his daughter’s daycare business — including one whom he abused for several years.

Ramon Rodriguez, 77, was sentenced to two years in prison and three years’ post-release supervision today in Queens Supreme Court. He pleaded guilty in January.

Rodriguez sexually abused one victim for years, starting when she was just 7 years old in 2010 and continued to abuse her until she was 12 years old in 2015, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said.

He touched the girl both through and under clothing and exposed himself. He also forced her to touch him and watch as he touched himself, according to the changes.

He even apologized to the victim and said “I know you hate me for what I have done to you,” the charges state.

Rodriguez later assaulted a second victim on at least one occasion between June and July of 2019. He touched the genitals of a 5-year-old girl under her clothing, according to the charges.

“In pleading guilty, the defendant admitted to violating these two young girls,” Katz said. “Sadly, this defendant took advantage of his access to his daughter’s childcare business and befriended these vulnerable youngsters for his own depraved desires.”

Rodriguez must also register as a sex offender.
