TUCSON, Ariz.-A jury has convicted Daniel Barraza Sr. for molesting three girls, aged seven to 15, between 2004 and 2011.

Last Week, Barraza was found him guilty of the following: multiple counts of Sexual Abuse, Molestation of a Child, and Sexual Conduct with a Minor.

When Barraza was confronted by police, he admitted to molesting the girls and said he was unsure what drove him to commit the acts.

For one incident, Barraza told police that one of the girls seemed attractive and for another one, Barraza said the incident occured at the "spur of the moment", per the Pima County Attorney's Office.

Concerning the other times, Barraza did not provide any clear motivation to police.

Barraza's sentencing is scheduled for January 28, 2018.
