PITTSFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- A man who fled prosecution over 10 years ago has been convicted of sexually assaulting two young girls.

The Berkshire District Attorney's office said that 54-year-old Juan Harry was convicted Friday of three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child and rape of a child.

He will serve up 8 to 10 years in prison.

Prosecutors told Western Mass News that he was arrested by North Adams Police and charged with sexually assaulting two 11-year-old girls in 2003.

He fled in 2010 and was apprehended in New York in August.
