A jury has found Mark Felix guilty of Attempted Third Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct as a Second Degree Felony and two counts of Fourth Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct as a Misdemeanor following trial.

The defendant groped and tried to digitally penetrate a minor in March 2021, then fled
when she woke up and her grandfather tried to confront him.

He will be sentenced on July 28, 2021, by Judge Vernon Perez and faces up to 10 years
imprisonment at the Department of Corrections.

“The victim demonstrated bravery throughout this case,” said Prosecuting Attorney Sean
Brown. “It was through her bravery and the cooperation and support of her family that
made the prosecution of this case possible. I also want to say to the community: we need to be careful who we allow into our home because anyone, no matter how well we know them, can be a potential threat.”
