EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A Texas jury has convicted a former priest of sexually assaulting an altar server over several years.

Miguel Luna was convicted Monday in El Paso of several charges that include six counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The punishment phase of his trial began Tuesday and the 69-year-old Luna faces up to life in prison.

Luna was arrested last year after the victim, now in her 30s, reported the abuse to El Paso police in 2016, stating that the sexual assault began when she was 8 years old.

She told investigators that the assaults lasted from 1991 to 1998.

Officials with the Catholic Diocese of El Paso have said that Luna was ordained in 1982 and removed from the ministry in 2013.
