A Des Moines father who admitted molesting his daughters will be sentenced in Polk County court Friday.

James Beaudrie entered a guilty plea to three counts of second degree sexual abuse in January. Beaudrie admitted to abusing the girls, who were all under the age of 16.

He says his wife would purposefully leave him alone with the girls in the family’s hotel room so he could molest them.

He faces up to 75 years in jail Friday’s sentencing.

James’ wife Kijua Beaudrie is already serving a 30 year prison sentence for her role in the child neglect.
