BUFFALO, N.Y. — An East Amherst man faces a maximum of 25-years-to-life behind bars after a judge found him guilty of sex abuse.
Erie County Court Judge Kenneth Case rendered his verdict Friday against 48-year-old Tariq Nawaz following a nearly four-week non-jury trial.
Nawaz was found guilty of one count of predatory sexual assault against a child and Eendangering the welfare of a child.
Over a period of about three months, Nawaz engaged in two or more sex acts with a child less than 17 years of age.
Judge Case also issued an order of protection on behalf of the victim.
