A former middle school janitor, who pleaded guilty to molesting students on a City of Industry campus, was sentenced to 14 years in state prison on Tuesday.

"The suspect is being accused of inappropriate touching with female victims. Our female victims range in age from 11 to 14 years old," Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt.
