December 27, 2017 |  

Richard Lee Hranac Jr. was convicted by a jury of four counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 years of age, five counts of oral copulation with a child 10 years of age or younger and two counts of sexual intercourse with a child 10 years of age or younger. The verdict was issued in a jury trial that concluded on Tuesday, December 19.

According to evidence presented during trial, between 2007 and 2011, the victim’s mother was repeatedly hospitalized due to a medical condition. The victim was often left in the care of Hranac, who started sexually abusing the victim when she was 7 years old until just days before her 11th birthday. 

In January 2011, the victim was placed in the custody of a family member. She was initially afraid to report the abuse, but disclosed the abuse after her mother passed away in 2013. 

The case was prosecuted byDeputy District Attorney TeriAnn Grimes, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit. Sentencing is set for February 16, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. in Department 12 before Judge Maryanne Gilliard and Hranac could face up to 139 years in prison.
