HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A former Lower Dauphin School Board member faces 10 to 20 years in prison following a conviction Friday in his child sexual abuse trial.

Rodney Nissley, 48, of Hummelstown, was found guilty on counts including aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, indecent exposure, unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of minors.

The Dauphin County jury could not reach a decision on charges of rape of a child and statutory sexual assault.

Nissley allegedly molested a young girl for seven years, beginning when she was 7 years old, until she reported the abuse to a school counselor in November 2012.

After the verdict was read, Nissley's bail was raised to 100,000 cash and he was sent to Dauphin County Prison.

His sentencing is scheduled June 19.
