North Texas man convicted of molesting 6-year-old


A North Texas jury has convicted a former public transit bus driver of molesting a 6-year-old girl whose mother participated in the abuse.

   The Dallas Morning News ( reports that 47-year-old Leander Douglas Adams III was found guilty Thursday by a Dallas County jury of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

   Prosecutors say the abuse in 2011 came to light after the mother, who was Adams' girlfriend, sent photos of the abuse to another man. The man then notified authorities.

   The mother was convicted last year on federal child pornography charges and is facing 30 years in prison. She's still awaiting trial on sexual assault charges.

   The sentencing phase of Adams' trial began Thursday.
