NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A 25-year-old Nassau County man was sentenced to three life sentences Thursday for the molestation of two children.

Stephen Drakus was convicted last month on three counts of lewd or lascivious molestation.

In February 2012, two girls ages 7 and 9 reported to authorities that Drakus had inappropriately touched them over a several year period.

The investigation found the abuse started in 2009.
