A Palm Coast man who was arrested in May 2021 on child molestation charges was found guilty by a Flagler County jury on July 28 after a four-day trial.
Monserrate Teron, 59, was found guilty of two counts of sexual battery on a person less than 12 years of age and lewd or lascivious molestation on a person less than 12 years of age, according to a press release from the Seventh District State Attorney's office.
Teron had been arrested after his then-9-year-old victim came forward about the abuse.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case, and Assistant State Attorney Melissa Clark tried the case for the state, the press release said.
Flagler County Circuit Judge Terence Perkins presided over the case and will pronounce a sentence at a later date.
