LOVELAND, OH (FOX 19) - A Clermont County jury finds a man guilty of molesting a 6-year-old girl.
 
"I can't imagine the fear," said Hillary Fishel, the victim's mother.
 
Hillary Fishel remembers the day her then 6-year-old daughter came forward with horrifying allegations that a grown man inappropriately
touched her.
 
"So proud of what she did for a seven year old to come forward and tell the story," said Fishel.
 
31-year-old Joshua Lee Robinson was arrested last November by Miami Township Police. He was charged with gross sexual imposition for what
Fishel says occurred while her daughter was looked after by the Loveland couple.

The police report states that "the suspect pulled her pants down and touched her". The girl then reportedly "told the suspect that no
one was allowed to touch her there". The alleged incident quickly ended and the report says "the suspect then gave her a toy".
 
The victim's father says today is bittersweet.
 
"It just scratches the surface of how rampant these offenses are. It's disgusting and something needs to be done," said the victim's father
John Ridenour.
 
Assistant prosecutor Scott O'Reilly says Robinson admitted to lying on the stand today, and his story didn't add up.
 
"It's very hard once you are an admitted liar that people are going to believe what you have to say especially with such a compelling
victim who was really consistent with her story throughout," said Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Scott O'Reilly.
 
Although relieved, the victim's parents say this has been an exhausting year. But they stress communication is key for any parent or child
who's experienced a similar, traumatic experience.
 
"The biggest thing is listen to your children, watch for behaviors, it's not isolated anymore in one specific spot and to really educate
your children on what's appropriate and what's wildly inappropriate and really make them feel safe and they can tell you anything," said Fishel.
 
Sentencing is set for Dec. 23. Robinson faces up to five years in prison and he would also have to register as a tier two sex offender
for the next 25 years.
 
Robinson's family declined to comment but they do plan on appealing.
