A Paso Robles man was sentenced to six years in state prison Tuesday for child sex crimes.

Juan Antonio Esquivel, 31, was convicted by a San Luis Obispo County jury last month of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 14 and sexual penetration by a foreign object on a child under 14.

The sexual abuse reportedly occurred in December of 2016.

Esquivel, who faced a maximum sentence of eight years behind bars, is now required to register as a sex offender.
