An ice-skating coach was convicted Tuesday of 10 felony counts of sexual abuse against two students, the L.A. County District Attorney's Office said.

Donald James Vincent, 30, was convicted of one count of continuous sexual abuse, two counts of lewd act upon a child, two counts of forcible lewd act upon a child, three counts of oral copulation/sexual penetration with a child under 10 and two counts of sex/sodomy with a child under 10, the D.A.'s Office said.

Vincent was scheduled to be sentenced on February 21. Prosecutors said he faces multiple life sentences in state prison. The jury reportedly deliberated for less than a day.

Vincent was an ice skating coach at Paramount Iceland. He was accused of sexually molested two students at his residences in Hacienda Heights and Downey between 2007 and 2011. He was arrested at his Torrance residence on Jan. 11, 2013, following a month-long investigation. He has remained in custody ever since.
