ALBION – A Shelby man pleaded guilty today to a sex crime against four young boys.

Gerald L. Wolter, 37, of Freeman Road did not have intercourse with the boys, but made contact with them, according to statements in court today. Wolter confessed to the crimes, which occurred between January and May 2013.

Wolter faces up to a maximum of 12 years in state prison as part of a plea today to first-degree attempted criminal sexual act, and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Wolter also faces child molestation charges in Niagara County. The Niagara County Court is handling that case.

Wolter is being held in jail without bail. He will be sentenced at 2:30 p.m. on March 17.
