GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A Grand Junction man has been found guilty of assaulting eight girls and women over a span of several years.

The Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/2bBFkgw ) that 54-year-old Larry Church on Tuesday was found guilty of 20 counts of sexual assault, including sexual assault on a child.

Church was accused of assaulting nine victims. He was found not guilty of charges related to one of the women.

The investigation began in January 2015 after a 21-year-old woman accused Church of touching her inappropriately while she was sleeping after they had been drinking and smoking marijuana. Investigators say eight others then came forward with similar allegations.

Church’s sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 15.
