A 39-year-old man has been found guilty of course of sexual conduct against a child, a felony, for abusing a seven-year-old girl multiple times.
The Monroe County District Attorney’s Office tells News10NBC the sexual abuse happened in 1998 but the victim did not come forward until 2012.
Prosecutor Meredith Vacca said, "I am especially proud of the victim in this case who, after holding in this secret for so long, finally found the courage to disclose the sexual abuse that she suffered years ago. Now the man that did these horrible things to her has finally been brought to justice."
When sentenced on February 11, Luis Pabon faces 25 years in prison. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
