A pre-school predator pleads guilty to molesting children at his wife's day care in Gerber. 64-Year-old Ralph Martin pleaded guilty to molesting eight children at 'Country Kids Daycare'.

Tehama County Deputy D.A. Matt Rogers told Action News today the kids playfully called Martin 'Ralphie', but prosecuters referred to him as a predator pretending to be a friend. The molestations occurred at the daycare from January 2011 until his arrest in November of 2012, The victims were ages three to seven. Rogers says they don't have any reason to believe the wife was aware of the molestations. The D.A.'s office accepted his pleas Monday and in exchange, he'll be sentenced to 24 years in state prison May 28th.
