ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Greece man was sentenced to prison Thursday after he admitted to sexually abusing a child earlier this year. 


A judge sentenced John Patrick Kohlmeier, 38, to 18 years in prison and 20 years of post-release supervision after he pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual act in March. Upon release, Kohlmeier will have to register as a sex offender.

Bonnie Hughes also pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual act in January in the case.

Prosecutors said Hughes took two explicit pictures of the victim — a child younger than 11 years old — in March 2018. She then sent them to Kohlmeier, who allegedly had sexual contact with the victim several times.

The Monroe County District Attorney's Office said this sentence will run concurrent to his recent federal sentence in a related case. 

Hughes is awaiting sentencing.
