LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) - A 33-year-old man from Pine Grove, LA was found guilty of molestation of an 8-year-old girl on October 23, 2012.
It took just over an hour for a 12-person jury to unanimously find Charles R. Romero guilty.
Romero was arrested on April 14, 2012 by Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office. He was charged with molesting an 8-year-old child who visited his home. The victim told a teacher at school what had happened and a school counselor contacted police.
Romero faces a possible sentence of 25 to 99 years in prison.
Sentencing is scheduled for November 12, 2013, said Perrilloux.
