A Mill Street man was convicted Thursday of sodomy and child-endangering counts for molesting a 7-year-old girl in May 1989.
A jury found Charles Stephens, 34, guilty after about 90 minutes of deliberations at the conclusion of a three-day trial before Erie County Judge Michael L. D'Amico.
The girl told the jury Stephens molested her after her mother, who knows the defendant, let her go to his house for what Mills claimed would be a birthday party for a boy.
Stephens, convicted of felony drunken driving two years ago, faces a possible prison term of 12 1/2 to 25 years. Sentencing is Feb. 1.
