A man who fled the country in 1998 before his child sex abuse trial was to begin was found guilty Friday afternoon of five sex abuse-related charges.
It took a Baldwin County jury about an hour to convict Giusseppe LoPorto, 80, of two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of first-degree sodomy and one count of first-degree rape.
LoPorto’s sentencing is set for January. He faces a one to 10-year sentence on each of the sexual abuse charges, 10 years to life on the sodomy charges and 10 years to life on the rape charge.
