Man convicted of child abuse

A 19-year old man was convicted of sexually assaulting a 9-year old boy with a toy while other children watched.  The child’s mother left him with a baby sitter while she went to work.

He now faces 30-years to life in state prison.  He will most probably be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.  A Superior Court jury convicted him of aggravated sexual assault on a child that included penetration with a foreign object and two counts of child molestation.

The 19-year old told the others not to tell anyone what happened, but the boy told his mother.  She immediately took him to a hospital and the hospital staff reported the incident to the police.

If you suspect your child or someone you know is being abused, report it immediately to the authorities and contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who can guide you through the legal process of making sure this never happens again.
