A Queens Little League coach who pleaded guilty on Thursday to sexually abusing three teenage boys and filming two others as they performed sex acts will face up to 18 years in jail, officials said.

David Hartshorn, who was once named "Coach of the Year," admitted abusing the boys on several occasions between July 2009 and August 2010, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said. Prosecutors said they found videotapes and DVDs with inappropriate images of children under 10 years old in his home.

Hartshorn "took advantage of his position as a Little League baseball coach to get close to young boys before sexually abusing them," Brown said.
