A Muscatine, Iowa man was sentenced to prison after testimony from a girl helped to convict him of lascivious acts with a child.

Aquiles Alvarado, 65, was found guilty of two counts of lascivious acts with a child on Wednesday, February 19, 2014.  He was accused of multiple instances of inappropriately touching a child under the age of 14, and that child testified against him in court.

Alvarado was found guilty after a three-day trial in February 2014.

Alvarado was sentenced Thursday, April 24, 2014 to a total prison term not to exceed ten years, according to Muscatine County Attorney Alan Ostergren.

Once he is released from prison, Alvarado will spend the rest of his life under supervised release as if on parole.  He will also have to register as a sex offender for life.
