The court heard Tucker had already been sentenced by Cardiff magistrates a decade earlier for two similar offences.
On December 5 last year, Tucker, now of Gloucestershire, went to Neath police station to confess to sexually assaulting the girls.
Georgina Buckley, for Tucker, said her client had fully admitted to his crimes.
"He is somebody who is extremely remorseful and ashamed of his behaviour."
Tucker, who admitted four charges of indecent assault, was told by Judge Keith Thomas that his previous sentence should have acted as a warning.
Tucker was jailed for eight months. He will have to sign the Sexual Offences Register for 10 years and was banned from having unsupervised contact with children for the next 10 years.
