An Alabama man admitted to 164 child sex crimes this week.

Allan Eugene Ayer, 67, of Oneonta, pleaded guilty to dozens of charges of enticing a child for immoral purposes, child abuse, sexual abuse and sexual torture. He also admitted to five charges of sexual-degree assault.

Ayer was arrested in January on charges he abused two girls, one of which he started abusing when she was 6 years old and continue for 11 more years.

He was sentenced to a total of 12 years in prison, meaning he will be released when he is 79.

The family of the victims agreed to the terms of the plea deal, the local district attorney said.
