KINGSTON, NY – On March 5, 2024, Christopher Langjan, age 37, of Ellenville, was sentenced to five years in State Prison for a Course of Sexual Conduct in the Second Degree, three years in State Prison for Sexual Abuse in the First Degree, and five years in State Prison for Criminal Sexual Assault in the Second Degree, before the Honorable Bryan Rounds. Langjan pleaded guilty to these charges on November 29, 2023 following his indictment by an Ulster County Grand Jury in October 2023. Langjan will serve these sentences concurrently and will be required to register as a sex offender upon release.

The conviction and sentence arose from Langjan’s sexual abuse of four young girls over several days in July 2021.  Special Victims Bureau Chief Jenna Hastings said, “the defendant sexually abused four different children ages eight to fourteen years old and forever changed their lives. These young girls bravely came forward about this abuse and helped to prevent this defendant from victimizing other children.”

The Ulster County Family and Child Advocacy Center conducted a thorough investigation leading to the charges and arrest in this case and provided support and advocacy to the victims and their families throughout the prosecution of the case.

The case was prosecuted by Special Victims Bureau Chief Jenna Hastings.  Defendant was represented by Assistant Public Defender John Evans of the Ulster County Public Defender’s Office.
