Syracuse, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A Syracuse man learned his sentence after he admitted to raping a two and a four-year-old.

Last December, Ronald Clark, 33, admitted to raping the children while his wife, Sierra Clark, allegedly held them down.

The incident happened between April and the end of August of 2013.

Assistant District Attorney Jeff Schiano said of Clark, "I'm convinced he is less than a human being. His acts are absolutely unbelievable to me and they are unforgivable."

A judge sentenced Ronald to the maximum time in jail, 27 to 29 years.

"I'm going to impose a sentence that will put you in jail for close to 30 years, but you have sentenced these two children to a life sentence," said Hon. Anthony Aloi.

Ronald was also found in possession of child pornography and will serve a concurrent two to four-year sentence for possession.

Sierra Clark is held in jail on rape and sex abuse charges, awaiting her court date, according to the Assistant District Attorney.

The Assistant District Attorney said the two victims, now five and seven-years-old are "doing great."
