Francisco Trevino Guilty of Sexual Assault on Child

A jury on Wednesday found a 48-year-old man guilty of eight felony counts related to allegations he molested five girls.

Francisco Treviño was found guilty of six counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and two count of indecency with a child. He was acquitted on three other counts.

Jurors deliberated more than three hours before reaching a decision.

Each indecency count is a second-degree felony punishable by as many as 20 years in prison. The aggravated sexual assault counts are first-degree felonies which carry sentences as long as life in prison. All the counts also each carry as much as $10,000 fines.

The trial’s punishment phase will begin at 8:30 a.m. today in 105th District Judge J. Manuel Bañales’ court.
