WARWICK, R.I. -

A former Coventry day care operator was convicted Friday of three counts of second-degree child molestation.

David Lyons was found guilty in Kent County Superior Court of molesting three girls. The judge dropped a fourth count.

Lyons was accused of fondling a 6-year-old girl, her 9-year-old sister and an unrelated 11-year-old girl.

Lyons operated a day care center out of his Coventry home with his wife. Their state license was pulled soon after the allegations came to light in 2011.

Lyons, 68, could face a lengthy prison sentence. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
