SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A case manager at a shelter for immigrant children caught crossing the border alone has been sentenced to four and a half years in state prison for molesting three boys under his care.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Victor Salazar was sentenced on Friday on four felony counts of lewd acts on a child between 14 and 15 and two misdemeanor counts of sexual battery.

Authorities say Salazar molested the boys between 2007 and 2008 while they were in his office at the Fullerton, Calif., shelter making phone calls to their families in other countries. The federally-contracted shelter houses children who are caught crossing the border alone until they are reunited with relatives in California or back home.

Salazar's attorney, Lisa Eyanson, did not immediately return a message.
