HONDO, Texas (AP) — A South Texas man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for abusing children under his wife’s care at their home.

Prosecutors in Hondo say the spouse of 66-year-old Agapito Contreras apparently was not aware of the abuse at her unlicensed day care facility.

Contreras pleaded guilty to continual sexual assault of a child for molesting four youngsters. The D’Hanis man was sentenced Thursday afternoon as part of the plea agreement.

Investigators believe Contreras may have abused a dozen children over several years.
