East Farmingdale, NY- A Patchogue man was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison for sexually assaulting eight children at his wife’s unlicensed daycare. Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney said Angel Tacuri, 53, of Patchogue, admitted to sexually abusing eight children ages three to 10 years old from 2010 to 2015. Tacuri, was sentenced to 20 years behind bars and 20 years of “post-release supervision”.
“This defendant took the innocence of small children and traumatized them in the process to satisfy
his depraved desires and that is something they will never have back,” said Tierney. “This
extensive sentence guarantees the defendant will no longer be able to harm any more children and
ensures he will be monitored for years after he is released from prison.”
