A Superior Court jury convicted a 20-year-old Bear area man of sexually abusing a child. The ruling means he could face life in prison.
Deputy Attorney General Amanda DiLiberto secured the verdict for Donovan Kent on two counts of Attempted Rape Second Degree, 3 counts of Unlawful Sexual Contact First Degree, and one count of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child.
Over the course of 4 months beginning in the summer of 2017, Kent abused a family friend numerous times, according to officials.
A judge will sentence Kent in March 2019 to at least 45 years up to life in prison.
