SAN ANTONIO – It took a jury in Comal County less than 30 minutes to find a man guilty of aggravated sexual assault of a young child.

Michael Ellsworth assaulted a 4-year-old boy in 2015.

When the boy’s mother called police, Ellsworth was there and could be heard in the background yelling at the child because he knew he was going to jail.

Ellsworth denied abusing the boy but admitted to sharing a bedroom with him. He now faces 25 years to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
