Iowa man found guilty of molesting girls

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport man has been convicted of molesting two 6-year-old girls in his home in December.

The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/122TtBQ) that a Scott County jury on Thursday found 46-year-old Max Thorndike guilty of two counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of lascivious acts with a child.

Prosecutors say Thorndike forced the girls to touch his genitals the night of Dec. 15 while they were lying on a bed.

Thorndike faces up to 60 years in prison when he’s sentenced on July 25.
