A Goshen man faces a 250 year prison sentence after being convicted Thursday of 12 counts including child molesting.

Investigators say Derek Jones, 36, was found guilty on seven counts of child molesting, and counts of vicarious sexual gratification, disseminating harmful material to children and performing sexual conduct with a minor present.

The crimes were allegedly committed against five children, four of whom had lived with Jones for a year and a half.

At the time of the crimes, Jones was on probation for battery to a child.

He will be sentenced on February 10 and faces a maximum sentence of 248 years in prison.
