MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WUSA9) -- A 21-year-old Maryland man faces a total of 125 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to five child sex abuse charges.

Adderli Cruz Roasario, of the 8800 block of Piney Branch Road in Silver Spring, is guilty of one count of child abuse in the first degree and four counts of child sex abuse, according to Montgomery County officials. Each count carries a maximum penalty of 25 years, but his guidelines are 29-57 years in prison.

"Children are innocent. They deserve our protection from abusers like Mr. Cruz Rosario. It was important to hold this defendant accountable while preventing the re-victimization of the children; should they have testified in court," said Ramon Korionoff, Public Affairs Director for the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office.
