A National City man who molested his girlfriend’s three daughters — one of them over a five-year period — was sentenced Thursday to eight years in state prison.

Anthony Garza, 34, pleaded guilty last month to three counts of child molestation.

According to National City police, two of the victims came forward last year, with one of them telling investigators that Garza had molested her for five years. The girls were 15 and 17 years old at the time, and their sister was 10 years old.

Deputy District Attorney Carolyn Matzger said all of the victims were under the age of 14 when the abuse happened.
