BEND, OR -- a Deschutes County jury has convicted Alfredo Hernandez of sexually abusing a seven-year-old girl. The 61-year-old man's wife was babysitting the victim and her younger brother when he offered to take the kids on a walk to Kiwanis Park in southeast Bend.
The abuse occurred at the park and was seen by four people who intervened to stop it. One man grabbed the kids and removed them from danger until police arrived.
The jury returned a unanimous verdict on Friday, convicting Hernandez of three counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree. He will be sentenced on January 22.
