A former marriage and family therapist in Pasadena was sentenced to four years in state prison Thursday for sexually abusing seven patients, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced. 

Edgar Gustavo Villamarin, 66, of Pasadena pleaded no contest in September to seven counts of sexual battery by fraud. 

Deputy District Attorney Lisa Daruty said the defendant also was ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. 

The victims were touched or fondled by Villamarin between 2014 and 2018, the prosecutor said. 

The case was investigated by the Pasadena Police Department.
