Fort Collins, Colo. (AP) A former Roman Catholic priest has been convicted of all the sexual assault counts against him.

Forty-four-year-old Timothy Joseph Evans was charged with two counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, one count of sexual assault on a child -- pattern of abuse -- and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

He sat emotionless as the verdict was read.

Evans' attorney, Andy Gavaldon, and victims' family members declined to comment outside court.

Evans could face up to life in prison when he's sentenced in May.
