WESTMINSTER, Md. — A Carroll County man has been found guilty of child sex abuse following a three-day jury trial.

Officials say a child disclosed Matthew A. Little had inappropriate sexual contact with him over the course of five years, beginning when they were eight years old. He testified at the trial.

“This young victim demonstrated incredible courage by testifying at trial, and our office is grateful for the child’s bravery, which was essential in securing a guilty conviction in this case,” said State’s Attorney Brian DeLeonardo.

Little is scheduled to be sentenced on February 6.
