A 59-year-old Madera man faces 46 years to life in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 27 for molesting a 7-year-old girl.

A Madera County Superior Court jury found David Gary Jaquez guilty Wednesday of four felony counts of child molestation, according to Madera County District Attorney Michael Keitz.

During the trial, evidence was introduced that Jaquez began molesting the girl in February 2009 and continued until November 2011, when the girl reported the abuse to a school employee.

Prosecuting Deputy District Attorney Sally Moreno credited the girl with the successful conviction for her courage in reporting the incident, cooperating with the Madera Police Department and testifying in court against Jaquez.
