Former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Felipe Vazquez has been found guilty of multiple felony charges for sexually abusing and assaulting a minor.
A Pennsylvania jury convicted Vazquez, 29, on 15 counts late Thursday night. He was convicted of statutory sexual assault, corruption of a minor, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault of someone under 16, two counts of unlawful contact with a minor and 10 counts of sexually abusing children. He was found not guilty on another 10 counts of unlawful contact with a minor.
The charges stemmed from Vazquez’ sexual contact with a girl who was 13 years old at the time. Vazquez insisted that the girl had deceived him about her age during his trial, claiming that he believed she was 18.
