LANCASTER, Pa.—A former Lititz man was convicted Wednesday of sexually abusing a child in Lancaster County, prosecutors said.

A Lancaster County jury convicted 37-year-old Chad E. Frantz on ten charges, seven of which were felonies, including rape of a child.

Frantz abused the girl, beginning in 2003 when she was 4 years-old in Clay Township, prosecutors said. The abuse continued for six years.

Frantz, who had since moved to Chester County, was taken to Lancaster County Prison on $1 million bail.

Frantz will be sentenced at a later date.
