Guam – A man who preyed on a five-year-old child is facing a minimum of 15 years behind bars and a maximum of life sentence after being found guilty of sex charges.

Johnny Lujan Aguon was convicted of first degree criminal sexual conduct as a first degree felony, second degree criminal sexual conduct as a first degree felony, and harassment as a petty misdemeanor, according to the Attorney General’s Office.

“It is not easy for a child to come forward and disclose the years of sexual abuse they have suffered, especially when adults can be skeptical of the claims,” said prosecutor Christine Tenorio. “The victim exemplified courage when she stood up in front of 12 strangers to tell her story. She is the real hero. I am thankful for the verdict, as the defendant will now be incapacitated from committing further sexual abuse.”
