55-year-old Robert Bedolla Ambriz of Anaheim was convicted this week of 11 criminal counts of sex and lewd or lascivious acts with a minor, reports the OC Register. Ambriz's m.o. was to "lure" young boys into his apartment by offering them potato chips, toys, and cigarettes, then showing them pornographic videos and ultimately sexually assaulting them. One of Ambriz's victims was nine years old, and mentally disabled.

Although Ambriz pleaded not guilty, he was convicted on all 11 charges. He could be sentenced up to 171 years in prison for his crimes. His sentencing is scheduled for May 13th.
