A 54-year-old Roseville man has been sentenced to 16 years in state prison for the sexual molestation of three girls, whose ages ranged from 9 to 13.

Edwin Lionel Chartier must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and will be on three years parole after he gets out of prison, Placer County Superior Court Judge Robert P. McElhany ordered during the defendant’s sentencing Wednesday.

Two of Chartier’s victims spoke to the court and tearfully told the judge how their tormentor had adversely impacted their lives. One of the girls said she hoped that Chartier would never get out of prison. The father of one girl also spoke while the mother of another had an impact statement read for her.

Prosecutor Jeff Wood of the Placer County District Attorney’s Office said Chartier will be required to serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence.

“In addition, two of the felony charges against him are strikes,” Wood said. “Should he pick up a third strike, he is looking at even more substantial prison time.”

Wood said the crimes against the girls, who were 9, 12 and 13, began in 2006 and continued through 2009.

On April 21, one of the girls revealed the molestation, triggering a police investigation. The following day, Chartier walked into the Roseville Police Department and confessed the crimes, Wood said.

On May 26, Chartier came before a judge and pled out to three felony counts of sexually molesting children under the age of 14.
