Prosecutors are seeking a four-year prison sentence for a former swim coach and lifeguard who abused teenage boys during the 1970s and 1980s.

Abraham Kiewiet, 71, pleaded guilty to four counts of indecent assault on a male by a male and one count of gross indecency. He was initially facing 26 charges.
