A Saratoga County man who admitted that he sexually assaulted teenagers and young children for years has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Marshall Gaudet of Malta had been indicted on 55 counts.
Judge Jim Murphy said the list of offenses against Gaudet is the worst he has heard in his career as a District Attorney and Judge.
“I hope to never understand the evil that you have inside of you.”
Murphy also said that Gaudet is "so dangerous, he should never be allowed to leave prison."
Assistant DA Michele Schettino says investigators found thousands of images on his home computer showing him assaulting children.
“He can be heard crying out in pain, and he can be heard saying ‘Shhh, just lie there,’ as he continued to forcibly rape this infant.”
Schettino adds “The fact of this case include four separate victims, from a toddler, to a teen, there are countless other victims who chose not to come forward.
Gaudet pleaded guilty in October to a variety of sex-related charges and is said to have had 20-thousand images of child pornography in a storage unit.
