The owner of a bar in Penn Yan who was arrested after a disturbing video posted on social media showed him sexually assaulting a passed out woman has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Bob Champlin pleaded guilty in December to two counts of sex abuse.

A video from Christmas Day 2017 showed Champlin assaulting the victim at his bar. He also assaulted another woman hours later.

Along with the prison sentence, prosecutors say Champlin will serve 10 years of post-release supervision, be forced to register as a sex offender and undergo HIV testing.

Orders of protection have been issued for the victims in the case.

Champlin has waived his right to appeal.
