SALINA, Kan. (AP) – A Saline County jury has found a 41-year-old man guilty of sex crimes involving a juvenile under the age of 14.

The Salina Journal reports that the jury deliberated less than two hours Friday before convicting Christopher Hitchcock of several charges, including nine counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, one count of rape and three counts of aggravated criminal sodomy.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 28.

All of the offenses fall under the sentencing provisions of Jessica’s Law and provide no eligibility for parole until after 25 years.
