A Kenton County jury recently convicted a 41-year-old man of sexual assault against his girlfriend’s daughter.
The now-convicted child molester admitted to “to multiple sexual acts” with the underage victim in August 2016, according to court documents.
Court documents read, “The Defendant testified on his own behalf and claimed when the sexual acts occurred he did not realize he was engaging in those acts with the minor, claiming instead he thought it was her mother.”
The jury deliberated for about six hours and found the suspect guilty of sodomy in the second degree and sexual abuse in the first degree.
He could serve 12 years in prison but will likely serve just seven if the sentences run concurrently.
