An East County man was convicted today for molesting three children over the course of two years, according to the district attorney’s office.
Patrick Pawlicki, 63, was found guilty of sexually abusing his developmentally challenged daughter and two former stepchildren between 2003 and 2004.
The Santa Ysabel resident was arrested in 2009 and fled jurisdiction prior to his trial, according to the DA’s office. Pawlicki was then found last year by a bounty hunter in Georgia, where he was booked into jail. He was then transported to San Diego and held without bail.
More than 40 witnesses testified during the trial and the jury deliberated for three days before convicting Pawlicki, according to the DA's office. He will reappear in court on Jan. 9, 2013 to be sentenced.
