ATTLEBORO - A city man was convicted Friday by a Taunton Superior Court jury of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting a young girl more than a decade ago.

Donald Frigon, who was 65 when arrested in 2006 when the incidents were disclosed to police, faces sentencing Monday before Judge Robert Kane.

After a three-day trial, Frigon was found guilty of sexually assaulting the girl from 1996 to 1999 when she was ages 11 to 14, said Gregg Miliotte, a spokesman for Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter.

The jury deliberated about three hours before finding Frigon guilty of three counts of rape of a child and two counts of indecent assault and battery. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Katie Rayburn.

The girl was an acquaintance of the defendant who remained silent until she was 20 because she felt ashamed and blamed herself for the incidents, according to court records.

Frigon was arrested after an investigation by Detective Timothy Cook Sr.
