Guam - A Superior Court jury found Joseph Reyes Rojas guilty of child abuse and  indecent exposure both as misdemeanors today. According to the Attorney General's office, Rojas was called to the victim's home in May 2011 to install a ceiling fan when he unzipped his pants and exposed his genital area to a minor in the home. The victim ran out of the room screaming and crying, as she told her mother what Rojas had
done. Assistant AG Gabrielle Rossi states, "The victim did what many adults are unable to do when she took the stand and confronted the defendant; the conviction of Rojas is due entirely to the testimony of the victim and the four witnesses who took the stand, I'd like to thank her and her family for their courageousness."

Rojas will be listed in the sex offender registry. He will be sentenced on December 19.
