JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A 30-year-old man was convicted Thursday afternoon on charges of lewd or lascivious molestation, and attempted lewd or lascivious molestation.

In April 2012, the State Attorney's Office said the then 13-year-old victim reported that Miguel Angel Delfin-Manta had inappropriately touched her while she was sleeping.

Delfin-Manta faces 15 years in prison, authorities said.

Delfin-Manta is scheduled to be sentenced the week of April 3.
