The owner of a Penn Yan bar pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of sex abuse.

Bob Champlin was arrested last December after a graphic video surfaced on social media. The video appears to show him sexually assaulting a woman at his bar, Lloyd's Limited Pub, on Christmas Eve.

Police say he later assaulted the woman who took the video. 

Champlin faces two to three years in prison and 10 years of parole. He will also have to register as a sex offender and submit to HIV testing.  A stay away order has been issued for him against the victims. 

Sentencing is scheduled for March 5 at 9:30 a.m.
