PITTSBURG -- A Guatemalan man is facing multiple life terms after a Crawford County Jury found him guilty of 18 child sex crimes.
According to Crawford County Attorney Michael Gayoso, Francsico Eduardo Noches-Padilla, 38, of Guatemala, was found guilty of 13 counts of rape of a child under the age of 14, four counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of aggravated criminal sodomy.
On 15 of the 18 charges he faces life in prison without the possibility of parole for 25 years and will be required to register as a sex offender for life.
Should he be released from prison he will face lifetime post-release supervision as well as deportation proceedings.
The convictions stem from a series of acts committed on one minor child between 2012 and 2017.
Assistant Crawford County Attorney Reina Probert prosecuted the case.
