An Ozone Park man will face time in prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing and taking nude photographs of a 14-year-old girl, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Robert Pou, 54, was sentenced this week to four to eight years in prison after pleading guilty in November to use of a child in a sexual performance, promoting a sexual performance by a child, second-degree attempted criminal sex act and possessing a sexual performance by a child, Brown said.

According to the complaint, in June 2016, Pou served alcohol to the victim until she became drunk and passed out. While she was inebriated, Pou had her perform a sex act on him, the complaint said. The following day, the young girl’s sister found at least 10 nude photographs of the victim on Pou’s cellphone.

“Betraying the trust of a young innocent girl, the defendant violated her for his own sick gratificat­ion,” Brown said. “He served her alcohol and then took advantage of her by taking photos of her undressed and manipulating her to perform a sex act on him. The sentence imposed by the court today is more than warranted.”
