LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln man faces up to life in prison when he's sentenced in August for abusing a 12-year-old girl and her two brothers.

The Lincoln Journal Star reported that a Lancaster County jury on Friday found Carlos Tucker guilty of first-degree child sexual assault and two other felonies.

The girl and her brothers — one younger and one older — each testified at Tucker's trial that he abused them one afternoon in March 2016 while he was supposed to be watching them.

The three said Tucker initially introduced innocent games in which the winners would get candy. But the "games" later turned sexual, with Tucker ordering them to perform sex acts on each other. The girl said he forced her to perform a sex act on him.

Tucker denied the charges, but prosecutors presented DNA evidence along with the children's testimony.
