A former South Florida swim instructor was found guilty of molesting three 6-year-old girls.
On Thursday, Francisco De Aragon, 29, was found guilty of sexual battery on a child, lewd and lascivious molestation and battery. He faces a mandatory life sentence for the sexual battery charge, WPLG reported.
All three girls bringing accusations from the incidents several years ago testified against him, WPLG reported.
“He was touching my bathing suit and then he went under … his hand, and then he touched my private,” one girl said, according to WPLG.
De Aragon denied the accuation and said he had “no idea” why he was there, WPLG reported. He also said no to a plea deal that would have left him with a 25-year prison term, according to WPLG.
