JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Bruce Alphonso Middleton is facing life in prison. He was convicted on one count of lewd or lascivious molestation on a child under the age of 12.
The 58-year-old inappropriately touched an 8-year-old girl in May of 2010. Middleton also abused an 11-year-old boy.
These crimes happened in Duval County, but he was arrested in Denver, Colorado, and then was transported back to the First Coast by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Fugutive Unit.
"This case involved not only this victim, but also another boy that suffered at his [Middleton] hands as well. With this verdict, they have both been vindicated," said Assistant State Attorney Anna Hixon.
Middleton will be declared a sexual predator. He will be sentenced September 26th.
