A 78-year-old man could spend the rest of his life in prison for molesting two little girls.

Last summer, a jury found Emmett Larsen guilty on charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust. He was sentenced Tuesday

Arrest documents 11 News obtained when he was arrested in 2012 state that one of the victims told police that there were three incidents that happened between December 2011 and February 2012. The two victims were 10 years old at the time.

Detectives said Larsen admitted after his arrest to touching the girls inappropriately, but claimed it wasn't intentional.

Larsen faces eight years to life in prison.
