A swift deliberation by an Ontario County jury on Tuesday resulted in the conviction of Thomas Oswold, 52, of Elmira, on charges of predatory sexual assault against a child.
District Attorney Jim Ritts announced the verdict from a trial that began just a day earlier.
Oswold, who was arrested in April following an indictment by a county grand jury, was found guilty of assaulting a child in Farmington between 2014 and 2016.
Scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 1 by county Judge Brian Dennis, Oswold faces a class A felony charge which carries a potential sentence ranging from 10 years to life up to a maximum of 25 to life in prison.
