(ST.CHARLES) A northwest suburban man has been convicted of molesting a young girl multiple times over a period of nearly a year.

Eduardo Hernandez-Flores, 37, was found guilty Thursday of three counts of aggravated sexual abuse and one count of attempted aggravated sexual abuse, according to a statement from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s office.

Multiple times between July 9, 2012, and May 15, 2013, Hernandez fondled a girl he knew and attempted to place her hand on his genitalia, the statement said.

Prosecutors said the girl—who was younger than 13 when the attacks happened—testified in court against Hernandez-Flores, who waived his right to a jury trial.

Hernandez-Flores, of the 100 block of Golfview Lane in Carpentersville, faces up to seven years in prison, and must register for life as a sex offender. He has been held at the Kane County Jail on a $1 million bond since his arrest.

He is scheduled to be sentenced July 24.
