An Aurora man was convicted Wednesday of sexually abusing a young child he knew over the span of a year.

A Kane County jury convicted Jeronimo Elizondo, 23, of three felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse after two hours of deliberation, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.

The victim was younger than 12 at the time of the abuse between March 2011 and April 2012, prosecutors said.

Elizondo, of the 800 block of Hill Avenue in Aurora, will be required to register for life in accordance with the Illinois Sexual Offender Registration Act, the state’s attorney’s office said.

He remains free on bond and will appear for a sentencing hearing Sept. 18, officials said.
