A southern Illinois man faces up to 14 years in prison after being convicted of sexually attacking a 6-year-old girl.

A Jackson County jury has found 43-year-old Willie Gaston guilty of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Authorities alleged the Murphysboro man molested the girl in November and was arrested after the child told her mother of the inappropriate contact.

Gaston's sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 2.
