A state judge on Wednesday sentenced a former city employee and youth mentor who admitted sexually abusing a teenage boy to two years in prison and 10 years’ parole, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office said.

Antwan Diggs pleaded guilty to felony sex abuse in February, four months after he was charged with abusing a 17-year-old boy in a downtown hotel. He will be required to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison, prosecutors said.

State Supreme Court Justice Christopher J. Burns also issued an order of protection barring Diggs, 51, from having contact with the victim until Sept. 30, 2040.
