A north county man is headed to jail after a jury convicted him of molesting a child.
Richard Williams was found guilty of five charges in all. Williams molested the child, who was under twelve when the abuse occurred, between 2010 and 2011.
Prosecutors say Williams was friends with one of the child's grandparents.
Michael Burgund of Edwardsville told turned himself into police and said he assaulted the girls, aged two and three in 2011, but later withdrew that confession. This was the mandatory minimum penalty based on the number and types of charges Burgund faced.
