Ste. Genevieve man guilty in molestations

FARMINGTON, Mo. (AP) - The 62-year-old man accused of numerous sex crimes against children faces sentencing April 17 after admitting to the crimes.
William Huck of Ste. Genevieve pleaded guilty Friday to seven sex-related charges, but admitted to 30 crimes involving seven children. By pleading guilty as a predatory sexual offender, the judge will have the authority to determine how many years Huck must serve in prison before he is eligible for parole, or if he should not be considered for parole at all.
Huck spoke softly as he gave brief details of the crimes. He had been scheduled for trial next month.
Huck was arrested in March 2007. Police say he confessed to molestations over three decades of children who attended the day care operated by his wife at the family's home.
