CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire jury has convicted a former baseball coach of molesting one of his players when the boy was between the ages of 10 and 12.

The Concord Monitor reports http://bit.ly/1fWgHqb that 60-year-old Robert Joubert (JOO-bert) - who coached in the Concord area - was convicted in Merrimack Superior Court of three felony sex assault charges, including one count of aggravated sexual assault.

The player, now 21, testified Joubert made him perform sexual favors.

Joubert’s lawyers say they will appeal the convictions.

Joubert was convicted in federal court in November of possessing child pornography and sexually exploiting the same boy and other children. He was sentenced last month in U.S. District Court in Concord to 40 years in prison. The federal investigation began in 2012.
