MEMPHIS, Tenn. -

Press Release from Office of the District Attorney General:

A man who made phone videos of himself fondling his girlfriend's 11-year-old daughter has been convicted of aggravated sexual battery and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a child, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said.

Carlos Wilson, 39, sexually molested the young girl on a number of occasions during a two-year period until she was age 13.

Wilson had been dating the girl's mother for six years, but she notified police in 2011 when she found a phone video of him fondling her daughter's bare bottom.

The videos were discovered when Wilson lost his phone in Miami and it was returned to the victim's mother.

The incidents occurred at several apartments throughout the city.

A Criminal Court jury returned its verdicts Friday.

Wilson will be sentenced on March 28 by Judge John Campbell.

The case was handled by assistant district attorney Abby Wallace of the District Attorney's Special Victims Unit (SVU).

The unit prosecutes cases of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse of child victims; rape and aggravated rape of adult victims, and abuse of elderly and vulnerable adults.

SVU reviews child-victim cases cooperatively with Shelby County's multi-agency Child Protection Investigative Team.
