VALPARAISO | A jury deliberated nearly 12 hours before agreeing late Thursday to convict Portage resident Scott Nicol on all four counts of molesting two young girls.

Nicol, who faces between 20 and 50 years on two of the counts, will be sentenced by Porter Superior Court Judge Bill Alexa on Oct. 11.

The girls accused Nicol of molesting them during a period of January 2010 and August 2011 in Portage.

The girls' mother told police she knew nothing of the abuse, but said the girls had exhibited behavioral issues.
