Posted: Monday, March 29, 2010

SOLDOTNA - A Soldotna man has been sentenced to prison for sexually abusing a foster child.

Thirty-eight-year-old Dustin Poole was sentenced Wednesday to 34 months in prison. He pleaded guilty to touching a 13-year-old girl above her clothes in the chest area on New Year's Eve 2007.

Police say Poole touched the girl while she slept on multiple occasions. Records also indicate Poole admitted to placing a hidden camera inside the girl's clothes hamper and to filming her while she showered and used the bathroom.

Judge Carl Bauman also placed Poole on five years' probation. He will be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

Poole, fighting back tears, said he was sorry for his actions.
