A Batavia man was convicted Friday of having sexual contact with a 5-year-old girl he knew, prosecutors said.

Juan Olmedo Torres, 26, of the 1000 block of Lorlyn Circle, was convicted of one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse by Kane County Circuit Court Judge John Barsanti. Torres waived his right to a jury trial, according to a news release from the Kane County state's attorney's office.

Authorities said Torres engaged in sexual contact with the victim between June 12, 2011, and Aug. 19, 2012.

Torres faces between three and five years in prison, although probation is an option. He is due in court May 30 for sentencing.
