Galindo entered no contest pleas to the four counts on in December.

Visalia police learned of the molestations after an older sibling of the two girls had called the police after learning that his siblings had been sexually assaulted last July.

Each count is a violent felony under California's Three Strikes Law.

Galindo will not be eligible for parole until he serves 85 percent of his prison term and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Galindo was also ordered to pay $10,000 in restitution fines. Future restitution to the victims and the Government Victim's Compensation Claims Board remains open.

Galindo entered no contest pleas to the four counts on in December.
