RENO, Nev. (AP) - A 42-year-old Reno man has been convicted of child rape charges.

Washoe County district court jurors took only an hour to return a guilty verdict for Ignacio Valencia on three counts of sexual assault on a child and two counts of lewdness with a child.

He'll face up to five consecutive life terms at his April 13 sentencing before Judge Patrick Flanagan.

Prosecutor Rebecca Druckman said the abuse occurred for about a month in late 2009. He was arrested after the girl came forward to police.

Valenica accused the girl of fabricating the crimes. But Druckman said forensic evidence linked him to the assaults.
