A jury awarded three girls $1.6 million after they were sexually molested by a teacher's aide at a south Los Angeles daycare school run by L.A. Unified. After the panel deliberated for about two hours, Richard Guevara was convicted of inappropriately touching the girls at Miramonte Early Education Center in 2002 to 2003.

Guevara is currently serving 15 years to life in state prison.

The district admitted liability before the trial.
