JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A convicted sex offender was convicted again Thursday night of sexually abusing three children in Kenner.

Carlos Alberto Montero Sr., 54, faces life in prison for his conviction of two counts of aggravated rape, sexual battery of a juvenile under age 13, two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile under the age of 13 and failing to register as a sex offender, according to Jefferson Parish District Attorney Paul D. Connick Jr. 

According to the report, Montero abused two girls and one boy over a five-year period, beginning in 2006.

The report said that the youngest of the three victims was six-years-old when she was abused.

Another victim was seven when Montero began abusing him, and the third victim was 12-years-old.

The Kenner Police Department opened an investigation in January 2016, after the step-father of one of the victims found a note she wrote to her deceased father as a form of therapy. In it, she referenced to being sexually abused, according to the report. 

Montero also was convicted of failing to register as a sex offender, for failing to notify police when he moved to Kenner from Gretna.

He was required to register as a sex offender because of a 2002 conviction of carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

Following a four-year prison sentence that ended in 2006, he was ordered to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

The jury deliberated less than two hours before returning its unanimous verdicts about 7 p.m., according to the report. 

Judge June Berry Darensberg of the 24th Judicial District Court is scheduled to sentence Montero on Jan. 10.
