A Muscatine man was found guilty of lascivious acts with a child after his victim testified against him in court.

According to the Muscatine County Attorney’s Office, 65-year-old Aquiles Gonzalez Alvarado was found guilty on two counts of lascivious acts with a child on Wednesday, February 19, 2014.

Prosecutors say on multiple occasions, Alvarado had inappropriately touched a ten-year-old girl, who then testified against him in court.

“The ten-year-old victim was very brave and testified in court against her abuser,” said Muscatine County Attorney Alan Ostergren. “I am always impressed by how strong crime victims can be – especially children.”

Officials say sentencing for Alvarado was set for April 11. He could face up to 20 years in prison. The court ordered that he be held in lieu of $50,000 bond.

    This scumbag should’ve just admitted it. Children should NEVER have to testify and recount their dramatic experience in front of strangers.

    Another of the fine illegal aliens invading our nation while the federal government leaves the border wide open while refusing to deport criminal illegal invaders.

    When will it end? When we stand up and say enough, deport all illegals… all 40+ million of them.
