The porn star known as “Bubba the Love Sponge” pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges of molesting and abusing children between 1993 and 1997, a federal judge in San Diego said.
The 46-year-old actor, who had a million subscribers on the video game website GameSponge, has admitted to engaging in “vile, heinous and abhorrent sexual acts with children and engaging in sexually explicit conduct” with one 13-year old boy and one 13 year old girl, according to court documents.
The victim, who cannot be identified, said he had been molested by Bubba since he was 11 and he began attending a local church, where he was told he was being watched.
“The video game sponge” was arrested in October 2007 and pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a minor.
He was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to perform 300 hours of community service and register as a sex offender.
He also agreed to undergo treatment for sexual abuse.
Bubb is the son of the late Bob Bubba, a prominent TV personality who was a regular on The Price is Right and other daytime shows.
He starred in the TV series Big Bang Theory from 2000 to 2002, and in films including Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
He is survived by his wife, Lisa, and three daughters.
