PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — David Scott Houston was found guilty of child sex abuse on Friday.

Houston was found guilty after a child was interviewed by CARES experts and told them that Houston forced her to touch him inappropriately.

The 31-year-old admitted to inappropriate contact with the girl he sexually abused but accused her of initiating it. The jury did not find that credible.

A report was first filed in May 2018 that alerted authorities of possible neglect and sex abuse involving the child. After the Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigated further, the child was taken out of the home she had been living in at the time.

Houston is set to be sentenced on August 29.
