MASON CITY | A Mason City man found guilty of fondling a child and showing her pornography will be sentenced in July. 

Patrick Lavern Holt, 58, was charged with lascivious acts with a child — fondle or touch following an incident several years ago with a 10- to 11-year-old girl.

A Cerro Gordo County jury found Holt guilty Thursday after a three-day trial. Holt will be sentenced 2:30 p.m. July 24 at the Law Enforcement Complex in Mason City. 

According to court documents, the child reported in June 2017 that Holt had molested her between June 2014 and June 2015 at his residence in the 1400 block of North Federal Avenue.

During a Child Protection Center interview, she said Holt had put his hand inside of her pants, fondled her and told her “they were having sex when he touched her," court documents say. He also allegedly exposed himself to her and showed her pornography.

Holt was arrested Jan. 19 and has been barred from having contact with the child.
