Ventura County Man Convicted Of Child Molestation; Could Face More Than Two Decades Behind Bars

A Ventura County man could end up spending more than two decades behind bars after being convicted of repeatedly molesting a teenager.

Prosecutors say Vincent Velasquez of Ventura was convicted of 12 counts of child molestation. They say the 55 year old man molested the teen during a more than two year long period.

He faces a maximum of nearly 23 years in prison when he’s sentenced later this month.
