An Ozone Park man will face time in prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing and taking nude photographs of a 14-year-old girl, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Robert Pou, 54, was sentenced this week to four to eight years in prison after pleading guilty in November to use of a child in a sexual performance, promoting a sexual performance by a child, second-degree attempted criminal sex act and possessing a sexual performance by a child, Brown said.

According to the complaint, in June 2016, Pou served alcohol to the victim until she became drunk and passed out. While she was inebriated, Pou had her perform a sex act on him, the complaint said. The following day, the young girl’s sister found at least 10 nude photographs of the victim on Pou’s cellphone.

“Betraying the trust of a young innocent girl, the defendant violated her for his own sick gratification,” Brown said. “He served her alcohol and then took advantage of her by taking photos of her undressed and manipulating her to perform a sex act on him. The sentence imposed by the court today is more than warranted.”
