AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A Maine man has pleaded guilty to sexual abuse charges involving three children.

WABI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2pcdF8C ) that 28-year-old Jacob Hastings, of Belgrade, pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual contact Tuesday. Hastings will serve at least six years.

Police say two of the children were sisters and one was a boy.

Officials say all of the victims were under the age of 12 when the crimes happened in 2014.

Hastings also pleaded guilty to assault and criminal trespass in Waterville in 2016. Following a probation violation-related arrest that year, police said Hastings identifies as a member of a white supremacist group.
