A 40-year-old Northern Westchester man admitted to sexually abusing a girl under the age of 13 last year.

Bedford Hills resident Julio Cortez pleaded guilty in Westchester County Court to first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, officials announced.

The case came after a minor reported that a classmate had been sexually abused by a neighbor, leading to the investigation that led to Cortez’s arrest.

Cortez was arrested in October last year following an investigation by the Bedford Police Department.

He was initially charged with second-degree rape, though he was indicted on felony charges of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child and first-degree disseminating indecent material to a minor, and misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree criminal contempt.
