A Westport man has been found guilty of rape of a child by force, and statuatory rape.

The District Attorney’s Office says a Fall River Superior Court jury returned the guilty verdict against 41 year old Edward Pacheco on Thursday.

The jury began its deliberations Tuesday afternoon. Prosecutors say Pacheco used force or intimidation to have sexual relations with the female victim for six years, before she was 14 years old. Police say Pacheco was a friend of the victim’s family.

Pacheco was taken into custody and will be sentenced on October 11.
