HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A Madison County jury has found a man guilty in a trial involving sodomy and sexual abuse charges.

The jury returned with the verdict against Roland Campos just before 3 p.m. Wednesday.  They found him guilty of two counts of sexual abuse of a child under 12 and two counts of sodomy.  The victim was 5 years old.

The abuse happened between 2012 and 2013 in a Madison County home, according to prosecutors. Campos was dating the victim’s mother.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office learned of the case in 2013.
