An elderly Paso Robles man faces up to 22 years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to three counts of child molestation.
Leonard Ray Franklin, 70, pleaded guilty to two counts of continuous sexual abuse of a minor under 14 and one count of lewd or lascivious act on a child under 14. The District Attorney’s Office had alleged that he had molested three children over a period of several years. The youngest victim was reportedly 2 years old.
He will be sentenced July 8.
