Former Saratoga County sheriff’s deputy admits to sexually abusing kids

A former sheriff’s deputy pleaded guilty to having sexual contact with two children, nearly a decade ago.

Steven Willetts will spend the next 16 years in prison.

The 42-year-old man pleaded guilty to one count of sexual conduct against a child.

By pleading guilty, his attorney says he spared the children from having to testify during a trial.

Willets faced 40 years behind bars.

NewsChannel 13 tried to ask him some questions after he pleaded guilty, but he refused to talk to us.
