A 41-year-old Spring man received probation after being found guilty of two child sexual abuse charges.

Manuel Salvador Maldonado, 41, faced a potential life sentence on eight various charges ranging from continuous sexual abuse of a child, sexual assault of a child and sexual performance by a child.

He was convicted last week by a Montgomery County jury on one sexual assault of a child charge and a separate charge of sexual performance by a child following a three-week trial in the 435th state District Court.
