MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island shopkeeper has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing an employee, then trying to hire someone to kill the victim so he couldn’t testify at trial.

Daniel Miller pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexual abuse, conspiracy and other charges after admitting he drugged and sexually abused the 17-year-old boy. The teen worked for him at a Santaria religious supply store in Nassau County.

While in jail on the sexual abuse case, Miller allegedly asked a man to kill the victim and later provided him with the victim’s name and address. Prosecutors say Miller offered to pay $15,000 to have the killing appear as a botched robbery.

His attorney says Miller is “glad that this is being put behind him.” Miller will be sentenced to nine years in prison in June.
