A Yolo County jury Tuesday found a West Sacramento man guilty of 47 counts of child molestation.
Michael Martinez also was convicted of five counts of possessing matter depicting sexual acts with a minor, according to a Yolo County District Attorney's Office news release.
The West Sacramento Police Department began investigating the case after receiving a report that Martinez was sexually abusing the child. With assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, police officers searched Martinez's home. They reported that an analysis of Martinez's cell phone revealed 20 videos showing him engaging in sexual acts with the victim.
Authorities said Martinez initially confessed to the crime. But when he took the stand during his trial, he denied it. The victim, however, testified to the sexual abuse, officials said.
Martinez is to be sentenced June 25 by Yolo Superior Court Judge Janet Gaard, who presided over the case.
