MACHIAS — A former Calais man has been sentenced to spend five years in prison for sex crimes against two teenage girls.

WABI-TV reports that Seth Larkin was also ordered Tuesday in Washington County Superior Court to serve four years’ probation.

The 28-year-old Larkin was convicted in January of gross sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact involving victims ages 16 and 18 who had spent the night in the apartment he shared with his girlfriend last May.

He also pleaded guilty to violating probation by writing letters from jail to his girlfriend, a witness in the case.

Prosecutors asked for a 20-year-sentence based on Larkin’s violent criminal history, but a judge handed down a sentence of 10 years with five to serve.
