A Plainfield man was found guilty last week in a child abuse case in Kane County. 47-year-old Anastasio Rodriguez was found guilty in a trial-by-judge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Kane County prosecutors say that in December of 2011, Rodriguez sexually abused a victim who was under thirteen-years-old. Rodriguez is due back in court in November for sentencing. He's facing three to seven years in prison and will need to register for life as a sexual offender.

The Kane County State's Attorney's Office says the victim showed courage by testifying against her abuser about a crime that occurred nearly ten years ago. Rodriguez remains free on bond.
