Former Joshua Tree teacher gets 60 years for molesting boys

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A former Southern California elementary school teacher and church youth volunteer who molested little boys for a quarter century has been sentenced to 60 years to life in prison.

San Bernardino County prosecutors say 52-year-old Caleb Hesse pleaded guilty last month to five counts of molesting boys under 14.

The San Bernardino County Sun says Hesse was sentenced on Tuesday.

Hesse was originally charged with 17 counts of child molestation involving boys as young as 9 years old over a 25-year period ending this year.

Hesse was a first grade teacher at Friendly Hills Elementary School in Joshua Tree. He resigned during the investigation.

He was also a youth volunteer with Evangelical Free Church in Yucca Valley
