A Queens music teacher gets a dozen years behind bars for sexually abusing and trafficking children. 

Oliver Sohngen was sentenced Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to federal sex trafficking charges in August. 

Prosecutors say he paid to have sex with minor girls at least twice, with victims as young as 8 years old. 

He also attempted to engage in sex trafficking of girls under the age of 14. 

Sohngen was a founder of the Long Island City Academy of Music in Queens.

He was arrested in May after an undercover sting.

In addition to the prison term, he’s also sentenced to 10 years of supervised release.
