Robert Stanley Lane, 56, was found guilty Thursday of molestation of a juvenile under age 13 in 22nd Judicial District Court Judge William Knight’s courtroom after a jury deliberated for 15 minutes.
Lane, of Slidell, was arrested about a year ago when his victim saw a video in school and realized that Lane’s actions constituted sexual abuse.
The victim had been 7 years old when the molestation happened in 2010. The child reported the information to a family member, who alerted the victim’s father.
Two other victims testified that they had been sexually abused previously by Lane.
Lane will be sentenced by Knight on Oct. 16. The penalty for molestation of a juvenile under 13 is imprisonment for not than less than 25 nor more than 99 years.
