SourceWHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (WPIX) - A New York City police officer has admitted to having sex with two 14-year-old girls and a 16-year-old at his home and a New Jersey martial arts studio where he was an instructor, PIX News has learned.
Trent Young, 41, of Middletown, N.Y. pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to three counts of transporting the teens across state lines in 2003 and 2006, for the purpose of having sex with them.
According to police, Young said he took the minors from his New York home to his Iron Tiger martial arts studio in West Milford, N.J. where he had sex with them. In one case, he picked up a victim from her Brooklyn home and brought her to his home via New Jersey.
Young faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison when sentenced by Judge Kenneth Karas in January 2010. Karas could reportedly impose a maximum sentence of life for the committed felony.
The 41-year-old is a nine year veteran of the New York City Police Department. He was suspended from the force in 2008 following his arrest by the FBI. Young remains in federal custody without bail.
