A west suburban man was convicted this week of sexually abusing a young child over a period of six years.

Marco A. Covarrubias-Rodriguez, 27, of Aurora, was convicted late Monday by Judge James Hallock of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.

Between March 2006 and September 2012, he initiated sexual contact with the victim, who was younger than 12, prosecutors said.

The victim told a counselor about the abuse in March 2014, prosecutors said. The counselor contacted the Department of Children and Family Services, and Covarrubias-Rodriguez admitted he had abused the child.

He will remain in custody at the Kane County Jail until sentencing, which is set for May 27. He faces probation or between three and seven years in prison, and will also have to register as a sex offender for life.
