PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana judge has set a late November sentencing for a 31-year-old man convicted last week of molesting three young girls.

A Gibson County judge scheduled Ryan Nieves’ sentencing on nine counts of child molestation for Nov. 20. Jurors who heard two days of evidence needed just one hour to convict the Patoka man Thursday in the molestations.

The Princeton Daily Clarion reports (https://bit.ly/1G2OJE6 ) the girls, ages 4, 6 and 7, testified about the molestations that police said occurred between Sept. 1 and Dec. 18, 2013.

Police began investigating the case in December and Nieves was arrested in March.

Investigators said in an affidavit seeking the charges that Nieves’ Facebook page had a December 2013 post that blamed the offenses on a social and personality disorder.
